It may be winter, but you can still see lots of wildlife when you're out walking. Look out for flashes of colour in the trees on the red squirrel walk at Formby, or see if you can spot rutting deer in the Peak District. If you head for the Northumbrian coast you might catch a glimpse of seal pups on the Farne Islands' wildlife walk.
Nothing finishes a winter walk quite like a steaming cup of tea and a big slice of cake. With that in mind we've picked out some great walkers' pit-stops for you to sample. And remember, every penny you spend in our cafés goes back to helping care for special places, so don't feel guilty about having another slice.
