A Family Walk in Culvery Wood, Pensford Village: muddy but marvellous

As you will know, I love getting the kids out and about in the Great Outdoors, exploring Bristol and beyond.

This week we went on a very muddy but marvellous winter family walk in Culvery Wood; this is located on the edge of the village of Pensford, about seven miles south of Bristol and eight miles west of Bath.

Culvery Wood offers a beautiful family walk; full of great old oak and hornbeam trees, and a haven for wildlife, it is situated next to the towering Pensford Viaduct and the River Chew also flows through it.

If you dare do this walk in the next few weeks, however, I would definitely recommend wearing wellies and waterproofs; it is very muddy in places!  Buggies and pushchairs will also not be practical for this walk, however, this is a great walk for kids slightly older.

I stupidly didn’t wear wellies and at one point had to use a big stick to walk through the slippery mud successfully, much to my children’s embarrassment when we passed other people along the way.

However, I recommend a family walk through Culvery Wood; it offers a beautiful, peaceful escape from the city and a good dose of fresh air.

Just wear your wellies!
