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

Just excellent. Always a great time had looking at the superb models. Great for kids big or small

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.

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

Five Wyches Farm

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

A quiet secluded campsite off of the main road. A long drop toilet and a hot shower what more can you ask? The owner also supplies firepits and will supply logs on request. Magic site.

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. 🖒
