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

The Jolly Roger Ltd- Lifesize Models

The Mill, St John's Ln, Bovey Tracey TQ13 9FF, UK – 01626 833646

Amazing display of life size, and bigger, models in showrooms on two floors. All open to the public. Well worth a look and a visit, the kids will love it. Their products and figures are shipped all over the world. Photo booth opportunities a plenty. Animals, aliens, dinosaurs, cartoon characters, scary stuff and pirates! Plus much more to see.

Brilliant place to visit with younger children, say 2 to 8 years, plenty to see and no admission charge, my grandchildren love it and you have a job to get them away from the place.

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

Five Wyches Farm

B3387, Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot TQ13 9LE, UK – 01626 932310

My son (5 3/4) spent 3 nights on the site and had a wonderful time. Hot shower, fire stand and plenty of logs to burn. I have camped at various sites all over UK and this was perfect for some wild camping. Plenty of space, wild flower area with lots of grasshoppers and crickets to find. A wood area to play in was also fun. Sarah came and met us and was helpful and informative. My son had many firsts for him bit more surprisingly I did too...sat having breakfast had a little Wren sit 3 feet away having his cricket based breakfast. As a keen bird watcher it was a sight that I will remember from this trip. I will most certainly recommend and be returning. Thank you 5 watches farm. 🖒

Lovely basic campsite located nearly Haytor which is explored in a day walk from here. Center with nice bakery and tourist Info is close. Do not expect 5star camping and enjoy this cosy place even more.

The Berkeley Leisure Group Ltd

This is the estate office, not a hotel! Friendly staff, great service when required!

Nice place

East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve

Yarner Wood, Bovey Tracey TQ13 9LJ, UK – 01626 832330

Visited the woods today to walk the granite 'railway' - everything about this place is utterly magical and I urge you to visit it! One serious point though, if you have a dog please keep it close to you. We were both angered and upset to witness a dog (no sign of owners) chasing a very frightened deer along our path. The deer was terrified and as it leapt past us we could hear its frantic breathing and see the sweat on its coat. We were unable to locate the owner of the dog, or a Ranger, to express how appalled we were at this. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful place to visit, especially at this time of year!

Beautiful scenery and beautiful woodland walks. Great for spotting wildlife
