Walking in the South West
Autumn is one of the most stunning times of the year to enjoy a walk in the British countryside. The array of colours from the trees and the low autumnal sun casts a stunningly beautiful light over the world, and there are many places where you can go to enjoy the gorgeous autumn colours on display at this time of the year.
The South West and the Severn valley is home to two of the best walking spots, and both are areas of outstanding natural beauty. So get your hiking boots, walking maps and a flask of tea and get ready to explore the great outdoors…
The Cotswold Way is a popular walk at all times of the year, but during the Autumn, you are in for a real treat. With miles of walking routes to explore, you will be sure to find plenty to see – from pretty chocolate box villages to the fascinating Broadway tower, you will be rewarded with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.
The Forest of Dean is probably one of the most beautiful places of all to visit in the autumn. The ancient woodland puts on a huge display of colour, whether you want to enjoy a picnic by the lakes of Mallards Pike, investigate the sculpture trail or climb the steep hills to see the surrounding Severn and Wye valleys, the Forest of Dean has so much beauty to see during the autumn it may be worth a few trips!
