Join the Great British Walk this autumn autumn-walk-2-280

Pull on your wellies and join the National Trust's Great British Walk (8 September-24 October), or see the autumn colours by bike.

Westonbirt, Gloucestershire

In the heart of the Cotswold hills, the UK's national arboretum is fantastic in October when the leaves turn to russet, orange and red. There are themed trails and lots of educational things for kids to look out for, with different free activities every day.

Brockhampton Estate, Herefordshire

In autumn the orchards are laden with apples and the woods ablaze with colour. If your little ones listen hard they may hear the croak of ravens or woodpeckers tapping at trees.

Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire

Inspired by the 'Tour de Yorkshire'? Then head for the Devonshire Arms on the 30,000-acre Bolton Abbey Estate and hire a mountain, electric or tandem bike. Froome with a View break from £150 B&B; bike hire extra.

Lanhydrock, Cornwall

Ten kilometres of purpose-built, off-road cycle trails have just opened here – a great, safe escape for families on bikes, especially little learners. Bring your own bike or hire one here.

The Ickworth, Suffolk

Take a buggy- and bike-friendly trip through woodlands at this National Trust estate that's also home to a luxury family hotel, so you can relax in style afterwards with an afternoon tea, knowing the kids are welcome. Download the Garden Tree Trail here.
