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!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Cotswold Outdoor

2 Abbeygate St, Bath BA1 1NP, UK – 01225 562230

I was on the lookout for new walking boots and had amazing help from Ben. He was knowledgeable on the different types of boots available and provided his opinions but never pressured me to go with any particular brand or style. He made a task that I wasn't particularly looking forward to a fun experience and I'm happy with my new purchase. If you're on the lookout for a pair of boots I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben to help you!

My favourite "outdoor" shop, happy to help fit any walking shoe or boot by softening certain areas of the footwear for you. Personal touch and great customer service.

BCH Outdoor

30 Southgate St, Bath BA1 1TP, UK – 01225 460200

BCH Outdoor is place to go for all your outdoor needs. What makes this place great are the staff, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They are more than happy to spend time with and answer your questions. Can't recommend enough!

Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Also you don't get the hard sell!

Amazingly helpful customer service I received today. Thank you.

Very attentive staff, great shop for mid level camping, hiking, wet weather gear. Does student discount!

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

Bath Mill Lodge Retreat

Newton Rd, Bath BA2 9JF, UK – 01225 333909

Extraordinary beauty into nature, next to a beautiful River and in between the trees. The room/cabin was decorated beautifully, big space with a large comfortable bed and the option of shower and bathtub as well! It also had a sofa with a fake cozy fireplace and a TV in the corner with the option of renting movies. A small but convenient kitchen was integrated inside the room. A feature that we really enjoyed is the speakers in the ceiling that you can connect to your phone to listen to your music. Next to the reception there is a lovely restaurant with great options and reasonable prices with a bar as well. At last the staff was extremely polite and helpful!! We will definitely come back again soon!

Looks very nice so far. The lodge is big and well equipped, comfy too. It's well furnished. The reception looked great and the bar is nice especially of you arrive early. There is a kids play area and a gym in the reception building. Parking is ample and the site is immaculate.

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