Getting out and about in the great outdoors is important for both mental and physical wellbeing, particularly during these difficult times. Just because it is winter, don’t let that deter you from being outside – go to shamrockgift.com for warm aran sweaters that will see off the worst of the cold, and head to Gloucestershire, the perfect county for walkers to enjoy.
Here are just some of the amazing places that you can have a good walk in Gloucestershire…
The Forest of Dean is an ancient woodland that has a long and fascinating history. There are many beautiful places to walk in the forest – from Symonds Yat on the banks of the River Wye and home to the Peregrine Falcons to the sculpture trail at Speech House near Coleford, which is a lovely walk that the whole family will enjoy.
The Cotswold Way – The entirety of the Cotswold Way is 100 miles long and stretches from Broadway to Bath, but you can walk a part of it too. Winchcombe and Cleeve hill are part of this route and combines the pretty village of Winchcombe that looks as it did 100 years ago as well as the fantastic views from Cleeve Hill over the surrounding countryside.
Wotton Under Edge – For history and mystery, this is the walk for you – discover the remains of an iron age fort, as well as one of the most haunted places in Britain – the Ram Inn. As well as this you will be able to admire the beautiful countryside of the surrounding area.
