The countryside, gardens and parks in the South West take a dramatic turn at this time of year.

Find somewhere to take your bike, or explore on foot and go wildlife spotting, geocaching or running.

Days out can be tricky when you've got a four-legged friend to consider. Of course dogs are part of the family, and many of our places are dog-friendly so you don't need to leave your pooch at home.

50 things

Keep ticking off your 50 things this winter. Here's some that are best completed at this time of year;

  • Play in the snow (fingers crossed we get some).
  • Go stargazing. Long nights and clear skies make this easy.
  • Cook on a campfire. Warm up and toast some marshmallows.
