Three short walks in the Lake District
The Lake District National Park is the largest National Park in Britain. Famed throughout the world for its stunning landscapes, sprawling fells and beautiful waterways, it has inspired poets, writers and artists alike for almost three centuries. If you have an adventurous streak or just a love of the great outdoors, then you must pay this place a visit.
Ennerdale Forest walk
The English Lake District is blessed with some of the finest scenery in the United Kingdom. Its fell tops, Lakes and Tarns have inspired many an artist and poets work! The many walkways and National Park paths there cater for all abilities to enjoy these beautiful surroundings at any time of the year. I am fortunate enough to live within an hour or so of the Lake District, so it has become my playground of choice.
5 Microadventures for busy people
The idea of a 'microadventure' is one that I love. If you've never heard of the concept, a microadventure is essentially an accessible adventure. One that anyone can do, one which requires little (or no) specialist equipment and can be achieved on a small budget and a tight timeframe. Because of this, microadventures have become incredibly popular with busy working people.
South West Coast Path: 10 of the best spots
It’s a 630-mile adventure - the South West Coast Path stretches from Minehead in Somerset to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Surging around the end of England, it snakes through a World Heritage Site, a National Park, fishing villages, ink-black cliffs and utterly gorgeous bays. Here heading out for a hike also opens up surfing, kayaking, climbing, Stand Up Paddleboarding, wild swimming and barefoot beachcombing. England’s longest National Trail is an awesome place in which to GetOutside.

Where else can you go where you can bag 3 of the huge Welsh 3,000 foot peaks, visit places called The Canon, Cantilever Stone, Devils Kitchen or the magnificently titled Castle of the Wind, enjoy an ending worthy of any Hollywood blockbuster and all this and never be further than 1.5 miles away from the car park.
