Christmas at Hudswell Woods

Wintry scene at Hudswell Woods in the Yorkshire Dales

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the festive period, burn off the mince pies and get some fresh air on a healthy walk with your family or friends. A cold crisp day with far reaching views makes walking at this time of year so rewarding.

Hudswell Woods Ranger Seb favours this scenic stroll and says, " It's a fantastic walk for families with plenty of open space for running, playing or picnicking and you'll even be able to skim stones in places. This route takes you over the banks of the River Swale, along woodland tracks and you'll see ancient woodland, distant views of Richmond and maybe even some cows grazing! In winter when the trees are bare the views are so different so it's well worth a visit.”
