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!

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

The Old Rectory Caravan & Camping Park

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

Lovely campsite...friendly owner and the site is great.love the chickens wandering free...they even came in our awning which kids loved. Will definately come back😄

Nice place and conditions,l. Located quite distant from most of the attractive points of Devon and Cornwall. The glamping pods are a pleasant experience, but far from worthing the price.

Harford Bridge Holiday Park

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

This is a well run family 3holiday village. Just to the north Of Tavistock. And is mentained to a high standard. And is popular with visiting campers. And caravans. The holiday village has good range of good quality facilities. Part of the site had a number of static caravans.

Nice quiet park, good central facilities block, but could become a problem when the touring/camping fields are at capacity, as there is only one facilities block for the whole site. A smaller toilet/ shower block near the river camping fields would be nice.

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you. Just enter your location and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
