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 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

Bath Marina & Caravan Park

Brassmill Lane, Bath, Bath Somerset BA1 3JT, UK – 01225 424301

Some pitch locations are much, much better than others. Very helpful and friendly staff. River Avon/canal pass along site which provides a pleasant walk into the city (about 50mins). Or you can hire a bike on site ( a handy alternative to walking!). Two good riverside pubs are nearby for meals and drinks. Will stay again.

Great location for cycling in the Bristol and Bath railway path. A busy site with vans parked close together but still quite quiet. A bit pricey for what you get.

Bath Penn Hill CL Site

Bicknam, Penn Hill Road, Bath BA1 3RX, UK – 01225 421456

Stayed here a few times and love it. Always a warm welcome from the owners. Perfectly situated for visiting Bath. Cycle path, bus stop and cotswold way all nearby, and of course good pubs.

Great location and bath is a beautiful city
