Dog Walk: Visiting the carpet of Bluebells at Micheldever Woods

Spring is finally in the air after an extremely wet March/April. The bluebells have sprung slightly earlier this year so we didn't want to miss the fantastic display at Micheldever Woods, so it was a fabulous opportunity for a dog walk and lunch with my mum and her friend.

There are lots of different walking routes in Micheldever Woods, with ancient woodland to fir trees, and an archeological trail highlighting Bronze Age burial mounds and Iron Age farm steads, but it is Spring when it is at its most glorious. Blanketed in the most fragrant bluebells, it's a heady walk, especially on a bright sunny day. A perfect spot for picnics and photo opportunities and as I recently found, dog walks. Digby enjoyed this day out as much as we did.

The bluebells should last the next few weeks so if you can go and take a look for yourselves.

If like us you didn't get a picnic organised, well I'll be honest I quite like our regular mum and daughter lunches, a short drive to the next village is a wonderful pub called the Northbrook Arms in East Stratton. With beer from local breweries and excellent bar menu its well worth a stop after a visit to these woods.
