More than 100 gardens and parks and hundreds of coast and countryside places are open in England and Northern Ireland. Following the latest government guidance, all houses in England and Northern Ireland are closed. We're reopening our places in Wales from Monday 9 November for visitors who live in Wales in line with Welsh government guidelines following the firebreak lockdown. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at weekends and school holidays. Please check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel. Find out how to book and what to expect from your visit.
Make the most of the winter weather - frost crunching under foot, low winter sun making the moss glow green, waterfalls swollen and spectacular with winter rainfall. Here are some of our recommendations for great winter walking.
This walk is quite steep but if you've got the energy to make it to Tarn Hows at the top, the return route offers spectacular views of the white topped high fells of Wetherlam and The Old Man of Coniston.
This is a wonderful linear low-level lakeshore walk, through woodland and parkland. With the trees, bare, make the most of the great views of the islands, interesting woodland archaeology and the Victorian Gothic Wray Castle.
Take in the autumn colours as you stroll around Fell Foot, with its complex of historic gothic boathouses, modern Active Base and a wonderful 18th-century pleasure ground including a Pinetum, garden and native flower meadows.
Try this lengthy circular walk starting outside Wordsworth House in Cockermouth – the birthplace and childhood home of poet William Wordsworth – and take in fantastic wintry views. Remember to wear your muddy boots for this one as you'll walking along tracks and across fields.
