Kielder Forest Northumberland – Spotting stars in the clear winter skies is a fantastic experience, so head into the Kielder Forest at night for the best views.

There are also lots of fantastic walking trails to take by the day – you may even spot one of the native red squirrels!
Forest of Dean Gloucestershire – This ancient forest is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and you will see for yourself why. With many stunning places to see, from the mysterious and enchanting Puzzle wood to the romantic Soudley Ponds, there is so much of the forest to see and enjoy as the trees light up with color for the autumn.
Hackfall Wood, North Yorkshire – Having inspired painters such as Turner and poets like Wordsworth, the beautiful Hackfall wood is a real treat – as you stumble upon waterfalls and rushing streams making their way through the trees, it is easy to see why these woods are described at the beautiful wilderness.
