NEW: COVID-19 INFO
Too many hours indoors during winter’s gloomy days and you’re looking to break out into spring’s fresh air and lengthening daylight hours.
At Yoxall Lodge, carpets of woodland bluebells appear as they have done for centuries - joyous, uplifting and filling the still-crisp air with their heady scent.
Here you’ll find a choice of six unmade path walks, with routes to suit your style and the time you have available, with either a gentle stroll or more energetic, according to your mood.
Pause on a bench or share a simple picnic; enjoy the birdsong and gaze at the wonderful spectacle before you as you witness the rush of new growth and vibrant colours of spring.
Set within the evolving National Forest, this is a visual, even spiritual tonic during April and May, according to Mother Nature’s uncertain timetable.
Please note: wheelchair access is rather limited at Yoxall Lodge, and appropriate footwear is advised for all visitors.
