Have you ever been on a day out, walking through somewhere new and just feel like you never want to leave? That’s exactly how I felt when I stumbled across an absolutely stunning scenic spot within a small seaside town in Essex.
Now, as I’ve mentioned it’s a seaside town you’re probably thinking it’s a beach that I fell in love with, well partly yes, but it’s also an enchanting woodland too. Its absolute heaven for me, a beach and woodland together in one area. It actually makes my heart want to burst.
Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex is a traditional seaside town and has the typical coastal town attractions such as a pier with a bowling alley, amusements, fish and chips, candy floss and of course a beautiful sandy beach.
But what makes it stand out for me is the Naze area. The Naze is an Essex Wildlife Trust site that features a stunning open air grassy area that looks onto the crumbling cliffs where you can watch the sea waves crash against the old war bunkers and clay shoreline.
But when you walk a little further to the end of the grassland, you are hit with stunning scenery of woodlands amongst different ground levels with heathland, trees, wildflowers, and a whole host of wildlife.
I LOVE this place end of.
But bit area that makes me heart sing is this specific spot where you are within the woodlands, beneath the trees on the cliff edge with the smell of the sea air filling your lungs and the sounds of the waves crashing. And you are experiencing all of this whilst taking in the relaxing atmosphere of the woodland with the leaves rustling in the wind and the birds singing in the background.
What more could you possible want from an outdoor space? It truly is an enchanting woodland & seaside paradise.
If you’ve never been there then I urge you please do visit, they have many camp sites nearby, I only wish I lived closer so I could visit more often.
