5 half term walks whatever the weather.

Half term is upon us and so far it’s gearing up to be  wet one. My advice is to get out there anyway and enjoy it! There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. I’m talking full waterproofs, jackets, trousers and wellies. If it’s really windy maybe avoid the woods in case of flying branches, but other than that go for it! Even if it’s just for half an hour, the kids will feel better, you’ll feel better and they’ll remember how fun in was to get wet and muddy.

Here’s 5 suggestions for this time of year.

1- Painswick Rococo Gardens, Stroud.

I don’t usually post about walks you have to pay for, but  The Rococo Garden has one of the largest naturalistic plantings of snowdrops in the country and it’s beautiful. We’ve been for the past 2 years and not been disappointed. There’s a hedge maze and brilliant woodland play area as well as a activity trail for the kids. There’s also some really cool buildings and follys.  https://walkswithkidsnorthsomerset.wordpress.com/2019/02/15/painwick-rococo-gardens/ 

2. Ty Sculpture Trail, Nailsea.

This is one place, I’ve visited again and again and always been pleased to go back. There’s a lovely trail of tiny sculptures carved into rocks in an awesome piece of woodland. The kids get a map to follow and tick off the sculptures and there’s a cosy cafe to warm up in at the end. https://walkswithkidsnorthsomerset.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/ty-sculpture-trail-and-beyond/

3. Ebbor Gorge, Priddy, Somerset.

Make use of the wet weather to slip, slide and scramble your way down muddy Ebbor Gorge. https://walkswithkidsnorthsomerset.wordpress.com/2020/02/15/ebbor-gorge-priddy-somerset/

4. Poets Walk, Clevedon.

My very favorite walk of all. The best views in North Somerset, a tiny castle, a pub and a park.  https://walkswithkidsnorthsomerset.wordpress.com/2017/12/19/poets-walk-clevedon/

 

5. Bourton Coombe, Flax Bourton.

A magical wooded valley with plenty to explore, gnarly old spooky trees and the best den me and Louie have ever been in. https://walkswithkidsnorthsomerset.wordpress.com/2019/01/26/bourton-combe/
