At our happiest Outdoors




One of the things we realised looking back over the last year, was that as a family unit we tend to be at our happiest and most content when we are outside. It doesn't matter whether its at the beach, the woods, on the allotment or on the moor, it just seems to be that open space surrounded by nature suits us all. So with this in mind and the fact that the children are now at ages when they can keep walking for quite a while before the youngest says 'pick me up' we have been making a conscious effort to get outside as much as possible lately. Wrapped up warm, with a flask of hot chocolate for them and coffee for us and of course a treat of something sweet like cake we have already done quite a bit of walking this year. We are lucky enough to live on the edge of Dartmoor, which is a magical moorland that covers an incredible 954 square kilometers, so gives us plenty of space to explore! And with the first signs of Spring appearing and the prospect of warmer days to come I am really looking forward to our explorations as a family this year.

  1. We are just the same Jenny! And the border of the Peak District National Park runs right through our village, so we're very lucky to have so many walks literally on our doorstep. Unfortunately our youngest thinks he doesn't like walking, but once you get him through the first half hour and distract him with sticks, treats, games or challenges, he'll walk for ages! There's nothing the top of a hill and the wind through your hair can't make a bit better.
