Great British weather, we’ve been having a rough old time recently. But dont let a bit of wind and rain keep you indoors. With Spring just around the corner, why not layer up, dig out the walking boots and head outdoors! Spend some time reconnecting with nature and appreciate the seasons as they change. Check out these super local short walks and see if they giev you any inspiration for how to spend a rainy weekend.

The Edge, Alderley Edge

Super local, why not head over to The Edge in Alderley Edge. Choose a loop path to walk along and enjoy the views over the lookout point pictured above! Be wary of muddy trails after you start walking downhill. We wouldnt recommend walking this one in flip flops (learn from our mistakes.) Pay to park.

Macclesfield Forest, Macclesfield

Trees have a calming effect on us, so what better place to visit than a forest full of them! Take a stroll round the resevoir and up through the trees. Free parking.

The Cloud, Congleton

Have you been up to The Cloud in Congleton? A short inclined walk up to the top of the hill for panoramic views across Cheshire. Want to make the walk harder? Dont drive up the hill and park at the bottom and get some extra steps in. Free parking.

Marbury Park, Anderton

A little further out is Marbury Park in Northwich, watch the sail club on Marbury lake, walk through the rows of trees, and look at everyone cute dogs being walked. Pay to park. Dog Friendly.

Tatton Park, Knutsford

A crowd favourite, take a loop walk round the lake, or check out Tatton Hall or Tatton farm. If you want a longer walk start at the town entrance and walk straight down to the farm and back. That will definitely get you your daily steps in! Pay to park.

Pickmere Lake, Wincham

And if your looking for somewhere to catch a pretty sunset at the end of the day, Pickmere Lake in Wincham is a beautiful lake. Take a seat on one of the benches, or see if you can find one of the two jettys and stand on the water. Its also a popular spot for outdoor swimmers, so if thats your thing then dont forget your wetsuit and a towel! Free parking.
