Bluebell woods in the Pewsey Vale

It is that beautiful season of the perfect bluebells. We are so lucky that the canal meanders through the vale Pewsey and here you will find bluebell woods to explore and see the carpet of blue that is just spectacular now.

Not far from the canal you can walk to the West Woods, or the woods above Huish, Oare or further alone the canal in the Savernake forest.

This week I took this photo in Gopher Wood above the small hamlet of Huish. There is something so magical about the bluebells. Just for a few short weeks they transform the greens of the forest to a carpet of blue. If you fancy a magical walk, moor somewhere near Wilcot and perhaps bring a picnic. Follow the country lanes to West Stowell to Huish, past St. Nicholas Church and up the hill into the woods.

Possibly one of the most iconic images of English countryside in early spring, if you get a chance they are definitely worth a visit. W have availability for this early bank holiday weekend, so if you fancy a relaxing break in the country we’d love to welcome you aboard a White Horse Boat!
