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

Eclipse Furniture

Eastbrook Road, Gloucester GL4 3DB, UK – 01452 336520

Excellent. I was looking for replacement table tops for a restaurant, the staff were helpful, the product was high quality at a fair price and delivered 2 days after payment. Would definitely use again. Simon.

Great service when you go to collect a delivery, and staff very useful when it comes to bike knowledge. Range and pricing is also balanced. Overall great shop and easy access.

Never had any problems,at all.I have been visiting store,for at least a decade.They have assembled bikes.Replaced,and fitted parts for bikes,and cars.they often give advice on how to maintain bikes,ensuring safe operation.Store is very easy to navigate to locate items.Sometimes,shop is busy,but that is to be expected.Always my first choice,for a variety of things.

Just So Homeware

23 Newstead Rd, Barnwood, Gloucester GL4 3TQ, UK – 01452 371795

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

Lovely site, with friendly staff and onsite essentials. The location is perfect; close to the main roads and the town centre. I highly recommend a stay here.

An example of a truly friendly site, dogs are allowed without too many rules just make sure that they are on a lead. The site cleanliness is a credit to the wardens and they go out of their way to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. More toilets, showers and freshwater taps would be a big improvement, although not necessarily needed. We will continue to visit Stansby, why? Because its brilliant!!!

Vendee Camping

1 Horsley Cl, Abbeymead, Gloucester GL4 4GD, UK – 01452 690206
