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!

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

The Old Rectory Caravan & Camping Park

The Old Rectory, Gulworthy, Tavistock PL19 8JA, UK – 01822 481731

We have had a lovely stay at this very friendly family orientated site. The pitches are generous in size and screened off between them. The owners are constantly improving the facilities and the guests are actively encouraged to partipate in the feeding of the animals. We thoroughly recommend the Old Rectory whether you are a camper caravanner or want a cottage or pod.

Clean and tidy. Facilities fairly basic. Might be rather tight for showers and toilets if it was even half full. I arrived in the rain on a bicycle out of season and was charged a whopping £16, cash - I felt that this price might have been arrived at after assessing my wet and tired state.

Harford Bridge Holiday Park

Peter Tavy, Tavistock PL19 9LS, UK – 01822 810349

Brilliant Holiday Park kids loved it. Spotless showers, friendly staff. We was lucky to see the worst thunder and lightening i have ever seen. Brilliant!!!

Well located beside the river with cleanest facilities that has been seen in GB. Very friendly staff - it was a nice stay :)
