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!

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 country. 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..

Camping and Caravaning

Stansby Touring Park

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

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!!!

Stop here at least once a year visiting family. Always a really friendly atmosphere. Basic facilities, but always kept spotlessly clean. Kids love riding their bikes around the site.

Chosen Hill

Hucclecote, Gloucester GL3 2LQ, UK

Limited parking, amazing views

Barnwood Arboretum, Nature Reserve & Park

5 Spire Way, Barnwood, Gloucester GL4 3EN, UK – 01452 533482

Beautiful area for walks, running and exercise. Plenty of areas to sit and relax amongst many different trees. Lovely tosee autumn colours and magical in spring. Sometimes sheep are grazing in a few areas so does restrict dog walkers a bit. Nice little brook prone to flooding and seems to attract alot of litter sadly.

Great place to relax on a warm day. Perfect for picnics.
