Walks for this winter

It might be cold outside, but there are still plenty of great walks to help you get away from the Christmas crowds and enjoy some great countryside. Here’s a few ideas.

Houses in the village at Lacock, Wiltshire

Lacock village walk

This easy walk takes you around the beautiful medieval village of Lacock and explores some of the off-the-beaten-track paths within easy reach of the village centre. Picturesque cottages, a ford for little toes to splash in and views of traditional English countryside mean it has something for all.
