The Countryside Code

Respect – Protect – Enjoy

The Countryside isn’t just where you think it may be. It can be the rolling hills and wooded walks that many of us enjoy and love, but it is also much more! From urban parks, to our many waterways and coastlines, the great outdoors offers something for everyone. So that we can all enjoy time spent in nature, it is important that we respect and protect our natural spaces.

The Countryside Code is an important tool to help us all feel confident in enjoying time outdoors in a safe and respectful way. The Code can also help us all feel a sense of connection to our natural spaces and we are more likely to do the right thing when we do. More and more, we are realising the health benefits that spending time in nature brings us; getting outside can bring great benefits to your wellbeing.

So whether you’re interested in finding a local park near you, or planning an adventure further afield, be sure to check the Countryside Code before you travel and discover some of the exciting resources we have available.
