One of the best things about getting out on the open road is the prospect of fresh, countryside air, exploring the magnificent British landscapes and scenery and spending time with your nearest and dearest. Here at Allens Caravans, we believe that our caravan parks are in some of the best locations in the UK for undertaking all of the above and enjoying it as it was intended.
Country walks are a long-standing tradition for many families across the UK, and, indeed, the world. The search for the perfect trail, the perfect wood and, more importantly, the time to fit it into our busy lives is something that often eludes us, but when you have a caravan at your disposal it is much easier! With the ability to get up and go to a destination of your choice allows for a lot of country walk opportunities – you lucky lot!
So, where are the best places to go? Let us investigate for you…
Brockhampton Estate Wildlife Walk
This is a short and easy walk; 1.5 miles through the woods with plenty of wildlife on display. A quick half an hour walk to pass some time, this is an excellent way to stay active, even during the colder weather.
An easy 0.75-mile long route that is suitable for children, pushchairs and wheelchairs, take an afternoon amble with the family and see how many deer you can spot along the way.
Croome Park Seat Walk
Another easy walk, this time taking roughly an hour and a half to cover 3.5miles of Lancelot Brown’s landscaped garden, and the conceived Croome River.
Hanbury Black Walk
This short and easy one and a half mile trail is perfect for dog walkers, with plenty of views on offer across the Estate and beyond.
Spernal Trail and Heart of England Forest
This dog-friendly trail from Spernal through to the Heart of England Forest takes in views of the River Arrow, Studley Castle and Spernal Park. At roughly 6 miles in length, this walk would take approximately two and a half hours to complete.
This mammoth walk is not for the faint-hearted, at just over 10 miles long, it is a sight to behold. Take in the seaside views, right along Cardigan Bay up to Mynachdy’r, as well as scenery like no other of Lleyn Peninsula and Snowdonia on the horizon.
While the above walks are all conveniently located close by our UK caravan sites, we understand that there are many other places across our countries that are still waiting to be traipsed and travelled.
Some of our favourites that you might be interested in include the Tolkien Trail in Lancashire, Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland and the Worcestershire Beacon, which are all jam packed full of sights, scenery and views that need to be seen to be believed.
