Shinrin-Yoku; The Benefits of Forest Bathing

I was always going to be interested in an episode of Grand Designs (tick) which featured a forest dwelling (tick) in Wales (tick). Three of my favourite things covered right there… It was a beautiful setting and I was quite surprised when Kevin McCloud stated that ‘living in a forest is not very appealing’ citing the damp, dark, enclosed nature of woodland environments. This couldn’t be further from my feelings towards forest living.
