Climbing trees and kicking leaves

Forests in England feel magical. This is where history has unfolded beneath, and sometimes within, trees many hundreds, if not thousands, of years old. Outlaws and kings alike have sheltered in the forests and trees across the country. A walk is not simply a walk when it is in woodland. On forest holidays, children can build dens and climb trees, dogs will chase squirrels and jump into streams. You can forage for berries, spot birds, identify plants, or simply enjoy the tranquillity created by a canopy of leaves on forest getaways.
