You'll want to get the kids experiencing everything there is to see in the beautiful Roughtor forest.

Let us help you by suggesting a few tips and tricks to get your kids away from their screens and out enjoying everything the UK outdoors has to offer.

Encourage the little ones

Turn the forest into a playground as you use the stunning natural resources to entertain them.

With the birds flying in the sky above you, your little one's arms will be outspread as they try to balance on a wobbly log or jump between rocks along the way.

What better place than the forest to play stop and go? The sun blossoms in the sky as excitement fills the forest ground and the kids' laughter rebounds off the trees.

Explore the history in between bushes

Maybe it's time to teach them one of the most important life skills, map reading. Hear the crispy leaves under your feet as you notice the summit is surrounded by a range of rough rock walls.

The wood offers great pathways to keep the kids happy and enjoy quality time together, while they explore the nature on their doorstep.

Heading home, they'll no doubt be telling you all about their favourite parts of the day, while the trees rustle around you and you stroll back to the car.

We're sure once they're tucked up in bed, they'll be dreaming of all the fun they had in Roughtor forest and the games they played with their pals.
