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 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.

Camping and Caravaning

Lobb Fields Caravan and Camping Park

Great family friendly campsite with happy staff, so much so we have stayed four times so far.

Chilled campsite with great staff and facilities. Surfboard & wetsuit rental on site from the Native crew!

Pure Camping

Goulds farm, Braunton EX33 1HT, UK – 07909 179117

Had a blast there. So peaceful. Keeps me wanting to go back.

This was a fantastic little campsite, with toilets and nice hot showers. We camped in the lower field where we had access to the communal fire pit, very scenic, lovely and quiet, would go again!

Secret Spot Camping

Moor Lane Nursery, Saunton Rd, Braunton EX33 1HG, UK – 01271 816999

The shower block is basic but clean. You can get a bacon buttie and tea in the morning and the camping area is small and quiet. There are no pubs or shops nearby so you need to be self-contained. The people are very pleasant and they will charge your phone if you ask nicely.

Very friendly and helpful staff, cute kittens and dogs, short walk from the shops and a nice (longer) walk to the beach. Alternatively, the bus can drop you right off at the sand!

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you.

The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
