First I’m going to start by making no apology that this post is so photo-heavy. Last weekend we went for a walk in a bluebell wood and I loved all the pictures so much I couldn’t choose which to include. The walk through Austy Woods is only open once a year over the May Bank holiday.
The walk is in Wooten Wawen in Warwickshire. You can start at the Yew Tree Farm Shop and there is a field set aside for cars. The walk was to raise money for The Stratford Hospital Appeal. Adults paid £5 and it was free for children with all the money going to charity.
The walk is simply stunning. It is the longest and most spectacular stretch of bluebells in all of Warwickshire. I was amazed by how far the girls walked. The whole thing is about two miles and took us about an hour, going at 4 year old pace! The reason the girls walked so well was because they loved the bluebells. R was particularly excited as she adores flowers and kept saying she had never seen as many bluebells.
This is definitely a walk we will do again next year. It is open 10-4 over the May Bank Holiday. I think another time we would go early as it did get quite busy. We did see a few other people we recognised. I would also make sure the girls were wearing boots. I didn’t think they would do the whole route. I thought we would take a look at the flowers and then head back so I hadn’t really prepared for a long walk.
