Kempley to see in spring with Daffodil WeekendPosted on 20th February 2013
Spring is surely one of the best times of year to enjoy Forest of Dean cottage holidays, with the start of the warmer weather allowing visitors to this beautiful part of the country to truly appreciate the area’s glorious countryside, quaint villages and charming towns.
One of the many picturesque places which we recommend you take the time to explore is the idyllic village of Kempley, which will be celebrating the onset of spring by hosting another of its popular Daffodil Weekends on the weekend of the 16th and 17th March.
Although Kempley is, of course, free to enter and explore every day, this complimentary event will mean that visitors can take advantage of some special guided tours which will be setting off from the Village Hall on both days at 11AM, 2PM and 2:30PM, taking in the many daffodils that will, by this point, be in abundance all over the pretty village. As with the walks themselves, parking at the hall is also free, with organisers saying all that will be needed by those planning on coming along is ‘good shoes and lots of enthusiasm’!
Those planning the daffodil walks have confirmed that all fitness abilities and ages will be catered for over the weekend, with a range of excursions being planned. For disabled and elderly visitors, as well as those who are simply tired and not in the mood for a stroll, the village will also be putting on a ‘Daff & Ride’ bus which will follow the same routes as the walks. Leaving every 20 or 30 minutes, the bus will, as with everything else this weekend, be completely free to enjoy.
With other highlights of the event including stalls selling local produce and plants as well as a charity raffle, the Kempley Daffodil Weekend is sure to make for a fun and relaxing traditional day out for anyone who will be staying in holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean.
