One of the best ways to boost your mood and put a spring in your step is to get out and about and enjoy a walk in the woods. Whatever the season, the British woodlands have long been a place to relax, unwind and be inspired.
The Forest of Dean is certainly no exception – it has inspired the likes of William Wordsworth to JK Rowling to create their famous literature. The famous Wordsworth poem featuring daffodils was inspired by the local daffodil fields of Dymock and Newent and JK Rowling was inspired by Puzzlewood when she wrote Harry Potter.
Just because it is winter, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be out and about exploring the forest – treat yourself to some new cosy clothing such as this mens Ralph Lauren Polo knitwear and go out and see the mysterious, beautiful and enchanting Forest of Dean…
For kids, the sculpture trail is perfect. Roam around the beautiful woodland and see the sculptures that pay tribute to the forest and the people who live here.
The beautiful lakes at Mallards Pike are a great place to enjoy a frosty winter stroll by the water. Remember to bring plenty of seed for the hungry ducks!
Clearwell caves are the perfect place to visit on a rainy day – head deep under the forest floor and see the mysterious caves – discover their history and maybe you will even see the ghost of the miner that is said to roam the caves.
