When it comes to walking, Autumn and Winter are the ideal time to head outdoors, so when Winfields Outdoors got in touch with me and asked for my top walking destinations and walking tips, I was happy to help out!

Walking Brinscall via White Coppice to Great Hill

Winfields Outdoors spoke to a handful of their favourite outdoor bloggers, and asked us for our favourite UK winter walks, and you’ll find some truly inspiring winter walk choices!

Camping with Style Recommended Winter Walks

I’m lucky enough to live just 40 minutes from the Peak District, an hour from the Lancashire Moors, and I can get to Cumbria and Snowdonia in under 2 hours. This means when it comes to walks I’m often spoilt for choice and whilst there are walks I keep returning to, there are others I’ve only done once that I can’t wait to do again!

Kinder Scout autumn walk

Kinder Scout, Peak District

I did this walk with my daughter and her boyfriend last Autumn. We camped nearby and started our walk at Hayfield, taking a 14km circular route that took us up to Kinder Scout. Kinder Downfall is dramatic and rugged and the walk itself was never dull.

Towards the end despite following the map and route description in our guide book, we spent the last few kilometres not actually certain we were following the right route, but cracked on and followed our noses.

We turned out to be right and ended up back in Hayfield where we tucked into an enormous meal at the local pub before returning to our tents. It was a fantastic walk I can’t wait to do again!

The ridge to Catbells summit

Catbells, Cumbria

This is a classic Wainwright walk and I couldn’t believe just how much the view changed with every step I took! After a short sharp initial climb and a fun scramble, there’s a lovely easy ridge walk up to the summit of Catbells. I did this walk for the first time just last month and was bowled over by the astonishing views after such a short climb.

The Roaches

The Roaches & Lud’s Church, Peak District

The Roaches lie on the edge of the Peak District and despite their unappealing name boast some spectacular scenery as well as amazing views of Staffordshire and Cheshire. The area is managed by the Wildlife Trust and it’s full of grazing cattle and wildlife.

Continue the walk on down to the spooky and highly atmospheric Lud’s Church, a magical place that really fires my imagination every time I visit.
