At the National Trust we are once again celebrating our Great British walk’s in partnership with PruHealth. Throughout the autumn you can find fantastic walks on offer in some of our most beautiful outdoor places. Many of the walks are on the doorstep of our holiday cottages so why not make a weekend of it and discover a new area on foot. You can then return to the cottage for a well earned rest.
From 1st September to 03 November 2013 many of our special places will host a variety of walking events, activities and trails aimed at all ages to entice you into the great outdoors.
The vast majority of our cottages have walks and events within easy reach, below we have highlighted a few to get you started:
Locate yourself at the heart of Snowdonia in Dyffryn Mymbyr Farmhouse with family and friends and be inspired by the stunning mountain views to follow one of our many walks in this beautiful region.
West Challacombe Cottage makes an ideal base for experiencing the breathtaking walks in Exmoor and along the North Devon coast. There are deer walks at Arlington Court and for the hardy an extreme butterflying walk from Dunkery Beacon.
Settle into one of the Coastguard Apartments sitting on top of Minsmere cliffs at Dunwich Heath and enjoy the lovely varied 5 mile walk that takes in wetlands, beach, heath, meadow and woods. You are promised lots of wildlife, especially as it takes in the RSPB reserve.
Whether you are looking to explore autumn colour in wooded parkland, experience a guided walk with one of our rangers, or try wildlife spotting along some of our most dramatic coastline, there is a theme and distance to suit you.
So come and celebrate walking with us this autumn, we look forward to welcoming you.
