Go for a stroll in the woods
The best way to experience and get a feel for any new place is through sight. If you’re planning on staying at a hotel or bed and breakfast, then ask your host or concierge if they have any great nearby walking trails. If you plan on camping, there are plenty of fantastic woodland camping spots within easy reach of most areas. The National Trust has loads of great walking trails across its sites so it’s worth checking out what’s around, even if you’re staying further afield.
