Enjoy Woodland Walks on the Isle of Wight

Anyone planning to enjoy the great outdoors while on a trip to the Isle of Wight this summer might like to consider the Woodland Walks attraction being offered by

Free to head along to and taking place on August 22nd from Pan Country Park in Newport, the event promises to be a great day out for all the family and will enable visitors to get back to nature, while learning more about the wide variety of edible fauna in the area.

Covering ten hectares in total, the park is a newly opened attraction for island visitors and is set in some of the most beautiful surroundings on the Isle of Wight.

Organised by Barratt Homes in partnership with Natural Enterprise, the attraction offers such activities as combing the grass for bug life, examining plants for their medicinal and health qualities, as well as enjoying 'pond dipping' for local wildlife, plus much more.

While many of the activities on offer are aimed predominantly at younger visitors, the sheer splendour of the park makes it a fantastic day out for lovers of the great outdoors of all ages, with many secluded and peaceful areas where guests can simply sit back and relax.

Visitors can also enjoy a range of refreshments during their time at the park, including tea, coffee and fresh fruit juices.

Ian Boyd from Natural Enterprise said: "Our series of walks are the perfect opportunity for parents and children to share a fun morning, searching streams for leeches and use the amazing Bug-Hoover to explore the park's mini-beast kingdom."

He added the organisers are keen to share their enthusiasm for the park with as many people as possible, especially given the hard work and dedication from staff to make this attraction a reality.

While the walk is free to attend, families are advised that children should be accompanied by an adult at all times while enjoying the wonders of the great outdoors.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801618064-ADNFCR
