Things this year are a little different – many of us have had holidays to exotic destinations cancelled or had to rearrange due to the pandemic, but the beauty of it is that many people are choosing to holiday in the UK, and rediscover the beauty of this country.
A walking holiday is a great way to re-discover Britain as well as getting closer to nature, getting some much-needed relaxation and fresh air. There are many fantastic walking routes in the UK that you can enjoy – just pack up, take your walking maps and get out and explore the countryside. Here are some of the best places to enjoy an autumnal walk…
The New Forest Hampshire – The stunning New Forest comes alive with colour in the autumn. Walk the Blackwater tall tree trail and discover some fantastic pubs for a bit of lunch and see the new forest ponies grazing.
The Forest of Dean Gloucestershire – The ancient woodlands of the Forest of Dean are a spectacular sight in the autumn, and with so many places to visit in the forest you will never be short of walking routes. Stroll around Soudley ponds or walk to the summit of May Hill to enjoy views all across Gloucestershire to the east and the Black mountains to the west.
Exmoor National Park – Follow the Coleridge way in Exmoor and see the inspiration for the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Taking in the Quantocks and the Brendon hills, the beautiful scenery is unforgettable.
