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!

Fantastically good

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

Oldbury Hill Camping and Caravanning Club Site

Styants Bottom Rd, Sevenoaks TN15 0ET, UK – 01732 762728

Nice, quiet, small camping. All necessary facilities - toilets, showers, light at night. A small shop at the reception. Easy to find, close to London, but rural enough to feel away from the city. Very polite and ready to help staff.

Spent a couple of nights here . The site is on a slope so anyone camping would be better off at the bottom on more level ground. The site is very tidy and clean. My only problem was the 1 shower in the ladies and 1 in the gents for a site that can take 65 units this really is not good enough the whole toilet block although kept clean needs updating.

Thriftwood Holiday Park

Plaxdale Green Rd, Stansted, Sevenoaks TN15 7PB, UK – 01732 822261

My daughter had a good time camping for a friend's birthday. Site looks well equipped and cared for but I can't say I used it myself.

We have just had 2 wonderful weeks at this park. Staff are brilliant nothing to much trouble for them very helpful and accommodating. Our kids loved the pòol only downer was the weather. Sam's bar was amazing with live entertainment for all the family, thank you to all at Thriftwood for an amazing time. We will definitely return soon.
