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


11, Brunswick Shopping Centre, Scarborough YO11 1UE, UK – 01723 364245

Very nice shop. Especially during these cold months. Very warm coats and fleeces, wellies and basics like gloves and hats. Friendly staff too

Mountain Warehouse

14 Westborough, Scarborough YO11 1UH, UK – 01723 367558

Lots of cheap outdoor stuff. The prices are always reduced. But I'm not sure how realistic the original prices are. Having said that, you can find some good value stuff. Shop carefully and enjoy.

Nice camping shop, has everything you'd need. Good range of kids clothing and accessories

Doorstep Adventures

Kepwick House, Peasholm Gap, Scarborough YO12 7TN, UK – 01723 507060

Best place for miles to buy Crocs

I have visited this lovely wee shop twice both times made feel very welcome by husband and wife team. Very well priced items of very good quality and I look forward to my next visit. Keep up the good work lovely

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!

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights. Saturday night and Sunday night. It was absolutely amazing. On arrival the staff were lovely and the tipis was nice and clean as well as the toilet facilities. Everything was lovely. Would highly recommend staying. Will definitely be coming again in the future!

Really good set up. ideal for kids. Great tipis. Just be aware that you're view is GCHQ!
