4.01K 0

The winter is a great time of the year to enjoy getting out and about in the countryside. As well as being a good way to enjoy the fresh air, beautiful scenery and exercise opportunities that the country has to offer, it is also a great time to enjoy a warm flask of tea in the great outdoors and update winter wardrobes with winter additions like this Ralph Lauren menswear

One of the best places to enjoy a winter wonderland is the Forest of Dean. This area of ancient woodland is in Gloucestershire, and covers a vast area, with something for all the family to enjoy. Here are some of the places that you should visit in the forest this winter….

Clearwell Caves – When the weather is too damp to be outdoors, you can still get out and about exploring. Clearwell caves are a great opportunity to explore the underground world in the forest and see how mining was done in the area years ago.

Soudley Ponds – If you want a romantic winter stroll this is perfect. Surrounded by the tall trees, walk around the peaceful still lakes, enjoying the fresh air and peace and quiet! Remember to bring some seed to feed the ducks who live here!

The Sculpture Trail – For fun for all the family, head to the sculpture trail at Speech House, where you can explore the woodlands and find the sculptures designed to express the heritage of the local area, from farming to mining.
