A walk through a towering coniferous woodland with meandering paths and a surprising short interval through a field with an impressive view.
Huxham woods, just 3 miles from Exeter, is a beautiful loop especially in the low light of winter. It’s perfect for little legs that like to explore a woodland and get very muddy – it might be a bit tricky for the really little ones though!
The brief walk through the field a third of the way through offers gorgeous countryside views, reminding us why we love where we live. The Outdoor’s Group also host their forest school here so you may be lucky enough to spot the kettle boiling, but unfortunately (and understandably) the equipment is only for their use.
