So what do you do on a cold morning when your little piglet is in a bad mood… yes, that’s right… go for a walk in a forest!
Drew and I have been here a couple of times before , the first time being when I was about 16 weeks pregnant. That time we also walked up to Bryn Alyn, which I highly recommend as the views from there are stunning.
We wrapped up warm and took some snacks. Walking boots are a must for this forest walk. I know this seems silly but I always take a photo of the map just in case I get lost! 😂🙈
It was so peaceful and serene here today. There was no one else around and so you feel like the luckiest people in the world to be experiencing this forest.
The circular walk itself is about 4.2km long with an incline. So make sure you’re prepared! Good shoes, a drink and snack and camera to snap some lovely scenic pictures.
And of course we took Ted with us who was beyond excited about returning here!
There are sign posts along the way so you don’t have to stray from the circular path if you don’t want to.
Even Ted was enjoying the views.
The forest is just amazing this time of year with all the autumn colours on show.
There are also signs with information about the sites history.
You can detore off the path and visit the lake head off to Bryn Alyn but today we just stuck to the circular walk.
Piglet was all wrapped up but refused to go to sleep! I’d like to think that she was enjoying the scenery too much to sleep!
Is a very happy pup!
As I write this now I have one little hairy baby (Ted😉) fast asleep on his cushion… I’m just waiting for him to start snoring!
And my other little baby is having a snoozy boob in my arms!
A good sign I think!

The first time we went I downloaded this pdf of the walk and it also shows you how to get to Bryn Alyn
Definitely worth going if you live near or are visiting the area.
