Top country walks to beat the January bluesBack

Finding ways to motivate the family in the winter months can be difficult – after all, not everyone is a fan of the January sales. In fact, many of us are ready to avoid the shops at all costs after the Christmas rush and find better ways to unwind.

Heading out for the day can provide the perfect remedy for the January blues, and it is guaranteed to keep the kids entertained whatever the weather. So, why not check out the Trusted Dealers’ shortlist of the best locations to visit this springtime.

Burnsall, North Yorkshire

Backdrop to the famous film, Calendar Girls, and a jewel in North Yorkshire’s crown lies the picturesque village of Burnsall, located in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it is one of the few totally unspoilt villages left, with a population of around just 90 people. Visit the Red Lion pub, a famous landmark where you can get a hearty meal and enjoy the scenery, and from there you can take a path from the car park which will take you on a spectacular 3 mile walk around the nearby countryside.

Epping Forest, Essex

Epping is well known for its spectacularly old, gnarled oaks and it offers some super walks for families. Head out to Chingford Plain in Epping Forest to enjoy a four and a half mile walk which tracks through ancient woodland to the forest church of High Beech. Stop at the legendary Biker’s café, Bert’s Tea Hut, nearby or the King’s Oak pub and Hotel in High Beech for refreshments before heading down towards the picturesque town of Loughton.

Loch Ard Aberfoyle, Central Scotland

This area of central Scotland really is a treat to visit and is situated at the Southern edge of the West Highland Fault inside the Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This walk is four miles long and starts in the Loch Ard car park. The walk takes in lots of mixed woodlands and you might spot some wild roe deer en route. You can find tea rooms and pubs in the nearby town of Aberfoyle which is well worth a visit and offers something for everyone, particularly those people who love old mysteries.

Delamere Forest, Cheshire

For a very family-friendly walk, head to Delamere Forest and choose the Blakemere Trail, a 2.7 mile walk on easy sandstone terrain. Starting at the Delamere visitor centre, the walk is rich with wildlife and takes in a large lake. This area is steeped in history and was once used as a vast royal hunting territory before the Industrial Revolution. For refreshments there is a café at the Visitors centre or you can visit the nearby Carriers Inn on Delamere Road which provides the perfect lunch venue overlooking the lake.
