About Our Trip
After a couple of weeks of suffering from the winter germs, it was the best way we could’ve blown away the winter cobwebs. We arrived at the car park jumped out of the car and in our excitement we started to follow the first footpath we saw. It turned out not to be a path at all.
We then discovered the map (very easy to see in the car park). We followed the route around the reservoir. We walked up the highest footpath first. We find this works well for the children as they were still full of energy. It was lovely to connect as a family as we discovered a new place together.
It wasn’t long before we lost ourselves in the surroundings, chatted together and made up games. The sun shone although the air was crisp. The walk revived us and left us wanting more.
