The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

The Range, Gloucester

Gloucester Retail Park, Eastern Ave, Gloucester GL4 3BY, UK – 01452 305080

I love the shop with it's variety of products and good value for money. I like to go there just browse around to see what I can use to improve our home. I was shopping there last winter for my wedding decorations. I marked them down for the shopping assistants on a till as they are slow and look most of the time bored. Otherwise great shop!

I love shopping at the range. Extensive range of all kinds of things from bin bags to hot tubs & wool to dog food. Allow extra time to see everything. There is a small garden centre out the back & a nice cafe with a good range of drinks & food.

Homebase - Gloucester

Eastbrook Rd, Gloucester GL4 3DB, UK – 0345 640 7135

One of THE most helpful, polite, knowledgeable members of staff we have ever encountered. The service we have received from Hugh in the bathroom department is second to none. A credit to the company. Many thanks.

Like having a mooch around Homebase as they do some great deals, but on the whole they're very expensive! This store do a nice selection of plants, indoor and outdoor, as well as some nice pots and other garden items - if you ask nicely and they have some spare they don't mind giving you a plastic pot or two ๐Ÿ™‚ my 50p discount plant is doing fab! Staff are what gets this review to 4 stars.

B&M Home Store

Unit 2, Gloucester Retail Park, Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL4 3BY, UK – 0330 838 9448

This store stocks a really wide selection of products. From coffee to shower caps, cereals to false nails & paint & wallpaper to garden furniture. You need to allow extra time to browse. Reasonably good prices so you can easily overspend! Large car park with disabled bays along the front of the store, this is a business park, home to 'Pure Gym, The Range & Starbucks. There is one furniture store that has closed.

Connor who works there is an absolute credit. Without even being asked he offered and helped me and my mother take paint to the car as he could see we were struggling. Nothing was to much for him. Lovely lad ๐Ÿ˜Š

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Stansby Touring Park

Reddings Rd, The Reddings, Cheltenham GL51 6RS, UK – 07944 105239

Absolutely brilliant site for either stopover or longer stay, clean and reasonable price, very helpful Warden's, will definitely stop again.:)

Lovely clean site, we have our own toilet and shower on board, so have not seen the site facilities. Very friendly, not too busy ,so plenty of room, but perhaps when full in the summer season,would feel a bit cosy. The road and railway line are very close , but didn't spoil our stay. Would come again .
