New Forest / A great wardrobe for the great outdoors

A Great Wardrobe for The Great Outdoors

The days are getting longer; the sun appears to be making a welcome appearance after what seemed to be a never-ending winter and many of us are excited to get out and about after weeks locked away indoors. Here we will look at some traditional spring-time activities plus some quality country clothing brands and how they can help you get ready for some fun in the great outdoors this spring season.


Walking Tours

Nothing beats the smell of fresh air and the feeling of a spring breeze upon your skin. Add to this a brisk walk in the beautiful British countryside (may we recommend the New Forest!) along with all the incredible flora and fauna that our country has to offer and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for a sumptious Springtime saunter. 

Jack Murphy Fallon Tweed JacketOf course, the British springtime can be a little temperamental so it's best to keep warm and dress accordingly with the changing weather patterns; our Hoggs of Fife Dirleton Tweed Jacket is the perfect option to combine both warmth and practicality without missing out on traditional country style.  For the ladies, the Jack Murphy Fallon Tweed Jacket is perfect for long walks in the New Forest, whilst still remaining fashion-forward to look good when you stop at some of the walking trails' country pubs. 


Horse Riding

Exploring the natural beauty of the New Forest on horseback is one of the most natural ways to take it all in. The New Forest caters for both those wishing to holiday with their own horses - offering many accommodation options including some five star hotels and boarding houses - as well as complete beginners who benefit from comprehensive guides and well-established trainers. 


Nothing matches enjoying the majestic landscape around you whilst atop one of nature's most revered and trusted animals and looking the part is also extremely easy as New Forest Clothing offers some excellent brands. The Jack Murphy Daley Quilted Wax Gilet for example does not compromise on style for practicality, making sure you look good without restricting any movement, allowing for easier riding.  


Nature and Wildlife

For those who relish in both intellectual and leisurely pursuits, there is room for both enjoying the outdoors and also becoming educated on the intricacies of the local flora and fauna that occupy large parts of the countryside. The New Forest offers many opportunities to get up close and personal with multiple types of wildlife including the wild ponies and deer as well as other game animals. 


To fully immerse yourself in the environment, our Jack Pyke Hunter Jacket and Fieldman Wellington Boots can help you become one with your surroundings so you can better observe the wonders of the natural world, which just so happen to be right outside your door.


Between the ever-improving weather conditions and the vast array of activities available there are some great excuses to leave the house and start enjoying nature this spring - and we have the perfect quality countrywear brands to help you feel and look your best!
