Forest bathing or a world away in our woodland ...come and enjoy this away from the crowds

Forest bathing originates from the Japanese practice of ‘shinrin-yoku’. Translated literally, it means forest bath. It involves sitting quietly in a forest or woodland and using your senses to mindfully connect with the natural surroundings, completely immersing yourself in them.
The idea is to calm the overactive mind and stress levels brought on by modern life. There are even studies that show forest bathing lowers cortisol, heart rate, blood pressure, and depression or anxiety symptoms – all of which benefit health and counteract illnesses. Worth a try, right?
We have enchanting woodland all around us . We have bluebells very soon and masses of wild garlic so you are welcome to take home as much wild garlic as you wish to cook with, make delicious pestos and sauces . Life is good in the countryside Lowland mixed oak and ash wood
