The shorter days and darker nights of winter can often leave us lacking in daylight, feeling lacklustre and needing a break, but we’ve found that there’s nothing quite like a brisk stroll and a breath of fresh air to make us feel restored!
Although we might be missing the sunny warmth of a spring or summer stroll, a winter walk is still worth braving any bad weather that’s outstaying its welcome! The UK’s iconic countryside landscapes change quickly with the seasons, so even if you find yourself repeating your favourite footpaths, there’s always something new to see - whether it’s buds on trees or young wildlife as the world comes back to life!
Whether you prefer gentle strolls or you’re an eager rambler, you’ll know that there’s nothing worse than setting off and realising that you’re underprepared. Especially in winter, light and easy-to-wear layers are the best way to make sure you stay toasty warm but also don’t overheat when the going gets tough!
Hello, thermal lining!
Keep warm and dry with these thermal lined, water-resistant trousers. Complete with plenty of secure pockets, you can keep all of your outdoor essentials (think keys, a compass and even pocket maps) safe when you’re out and about. What’s more, they’re water, oil and stain resistant to keep them looking their best — whatever life throws at them!
Explore easy comfort
With a clever water, oil and stain-resistant finish, these outdoor trousers are perfect for long walks, days in the garden and everything in-between. Multiple pockets and an adjustable waistband mean that they’re practical as well as comfortable, so you’ll be able to go wherever your next adventure takes you.
No cord-inary shirt
Although this check cord shirt is reassuringly hardwearing, it’s made from pure cotton, making it incredibly soft on the skin too. Add a long sleeved base layer or cotton tee underneath and a gilet or down layer on top for country-inspired style that looks as at home at a cosy Sunday lunch as it does on the hills.
Take your pique
For a soft pop of colour to brighten up a dull winter’s day, this pique stripe half zip top is practically perfect. In a heavyweight fabric for durability and warmth, its pure cotton pique fabric is exceptionally comfortable to wear. What’s more, it’s ideal for layering — a T-shirt underneath and a fleece on top will keep you cosy warm on even on the coldest of days.
An extra layer of cosiness
Cleverly bonding a soft and smooth microfleece outer to a plush-soft teddy fleece inner, this jacket promises unbeatable warmth during the winter months. The stand collar is perfect for snuggling down into on windy days, whilst its zip-through design means that it’s easy to cool off should you start to break a sweat. Pair it with a waterproof coat to really keep the weather at bay!
Ready for all weathers
When the dog is wagging its tail and you can’t put off that wet and windy weather any longer, don’t worry - our long weatherproof coat will come to the rescue! A fully waterproof finish with taped seams promise to keep wet weather out, whilst a soft jersey lining adds an extra layer of cosiness. Designed for all-weather protection, there’s even a detachable hood and large pockets for car keys (or dog treats!).
For tricky terrain
More than just the average boot, these lace-up walking shoes have a more versatile, low-line ankle, making them just as comfortable for everyday wear. With rugged, grippy soles and leather uppers in wear-with-anything navy or brown, they’re perfect for walks in the country or even just a stroll around town.
Puddles? No problem!
The low cut and stylish Chelsea boot-inspired look of these wellies make them perfect for rainy days here, there and everywhere — whether you’re running errands in the rain or planning a wet weather walk. With robust and grippy soles and hardwearing rubber uppers, they’ll last for years to come...and that pretty ditsy floral print will keep your wardrobe in full bloom all year round!
