There is nothing quite like a summer walk, with the sun shining and fully bloomed flowers everywhere. Just because summer is still many months away doesn’t mean we need to give up on our long nature walks though. We enjoy the crisp winter air as much as we enjoy the soft summer breeze, but we do acknowledge that we have to wrap up warm in order to avoid getting ill every time we step out of the house. Have a look at some of our favourite winter must-haves.
