I love looking out the window on a chilly January morning and seeing the garden littered in frost. One of my favourite things about winter is putting on thick layers of clothes, pulling on a woolly hat and venturing outside. As a perfect way to burn off those Christmas calories, we decided to go for a family walk in the countryside. It was a bright, crisp morning, with frost on the trees and a touch of eerie fog in the distance.
Our walk was to Iping Common, located in the beautiful West Sussex countryside approximately 2 miles west of Midhurst. Part of the South Downs National Park, Iping Common is a tranquil area of heathland surrounded by breathtaking landscape. All wrapped up warm with a camera in hand, myself, Jack, his parents, and working cocker spaniel Meg ventured out into the countryside.
There are numerous stunning walks within the South Downs National Park and so many hidden gems to explore. Jack’s parents are always introducing us to some of the best outdoor walks, so I’m sure you’ll see another post of this type in the near future.
If you’re looking to discover the great outdoors where you are, I’d recommend checking out the Ordnance Survey blog for some handy walking guides right across the UK.
