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

Swindon, a Wyevale Garden Centre

Hyde Road, Stratton St Margaret, Swindon SN2 7SE, UK – 0844 288 5112

Garden centre and good range of concession shops. Generally a tidy, well looked after site. Lovely bright café with yummy cakes!

Lovely cafe! Beautiful food (huge portions too) very busy during lunch time but well worth the wait. The garden centre itself is nice and seems to be well supplied with a little bit of everything.

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

Roves Farm

Sevenhampton, Swindon SN6 7QG, UK – 01793 763939

Great day our for the family. Indoor play and spacious area to sit. The staff are great as is the food. Loved the Gingerbread man performance on my last visit. The guy deserves an Oscar.

It's a great place to spend the day. The tractor rides are a highlight and are updated through the season. The play areas are huge. What let's then down is the cafe food is expensive and not great. They could also do to staff some of the play areas as done of the under 5 areas often have older children playing rough on them.

Wild Campervan Hire
