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

Homebase - Gloucester

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

Bit over priced and doesn't have as much selection as other DIY stores. Staff are always helpful and friendly though.

Got everything I needed quickly but good luck knowing what price anything is! Either unmarked, our wrong, but it worked out in my favour. Staff are very good

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

Nice friendly place, good size pitches, easy to find, and get to. Asda within walking distance.

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.
