Seasonal tips!


Summer

A picnic rug, hamper and ice-block to keep your lunch fresh is essential. You may also choose to bring insect repellent for when you’re taking a forest walk and sun cream for when you’re relaxing in the hot tub or on a forest glade!


Winter

Layering: lots of layers, gloves and a hat are perfect for a forest walk or bike ride. Just make sure your gloves and boots aren't too tight, and try not to wear too many pairs of socks – restricting blood flow to your hands and feet will make it even harder to get them warm. Wool is the way forward: When cotton gets wet it loses its insulating qualities. Opt for wool or synthetic materials to keep warm.
