The excitement of Christmas may be over but now is the perfect time to try out those new walking boots or a new camera and capture family moments or stunning landscapes on an invigorating winter walk.

Andy Beer, Director for the National Trust in the Midlands said: “Whether you want to get fit, spend time with family, or just admire the beautiful countryside; welcome in the New Year with a visit to your local National Trust place.

“Why not mull over this year’s resolutions while rambling along wooded paths or through country gardens; or get the children planning which ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ activities they’re going to complete in 2016.

“Even if it’s grey outside, just wrap up warm, pull on your wellies and plan your adventure.”
The special places the National Trust looks after are packed full of walking trails and great views that look even better with a dusting of frost. 

Here are some of the best places to walk in Warwickshire to put a spring in your step during the cold winter months.

There's plenty of wintery adventures to be had at Baddesley Clinton.  A variety of different walks and trails offer panoramic views, a range of wildlife, and the opportunity to learn about local history.

Packwood house is perfect for families.  Don your wellies and get muddy on the Welly Walk or go for a longer stroll taking in the Stratford upon Avon Canal. Four legged friends are very welcome in the park too.

The tranquil parkland  of Charlecote Park is a great place to enjoy a close encounter with wildlife. The fallow deer are often easier to spot in winter and the Jacob sheep that help to maintain the parkland ecosystem are never far from view.
