Easter Full Moon Walk

Many of you will know that the date of Easter is determined by the cycle of the full moon; this year the full moon (or Pink Full Moon as it is known, heralding the apperance of the "moss pink" or wild ground phlox, one of the first spring flowers) falls on Good Friday.  Why not celebrate in style by staying in a yurt (cosy with a log-burning stove!) and join us for one of our regular Full Moon Walks?  We have fantastic scenery nearby, with coastline, estuaries, heaths and woodlands all on hand for exploring by the light of the silvery moon...  A group of around 20 of us walk each month, generally around 4-6 miles, setting off at dusk so that we experience the delights of watching the moon come up (when it always looks huge!) and then walking by its light without the use of torches.  It's a fantastic experience - the world looks very different at night and being with a friendly group of people removes any fears or anxieties about being out in the countryside at night!  All you need is a stout pair of walking boots and a spirit of adventure.  The walks are free - just book a yurt (or the Shepherd's Hut) and say you'd like to come along on the walk and we'll look forward to welcoming you.  If you need any more info before booking just give us a call on 07802 456087.
