Now less than a week away from Christmas the festivities have certainly been ramped up to 11, but they could still go further...

What better way to get in the mood than by tiring yourself out on a long crisp walk and head back to get all snug and pop a Christmas film on.

You could also head the pub on your return, but, that's up to you (we won't judge).

T'is the season to wrap up in your winter warmers (scarf, hat, gloves and all) and maybe even catch some snowflakes.
