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

Field Archery

Center Parcs Longleat, Longleat Forest, Warminster BA12 7PU, UK – 01985 848000

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

Botany Camping and Glamping

111 Bradley Rd, Warminster BA12 7JY, UK – 07713 404233

A great campsite, located well for Longleat,Stonehenge and a huge amount of local walks. The site is well provisioned,and the glamping tents are stocked with everything you could possibly need!

We had a great time. Especial loved the open roof showers

Hunters Moon

Warminster, Wiltshirer BA12 9PA, UK – 01985 846300

Very tranquil and makes you happy to be close to; birds, trees, ducks and common carp. The staff are hardly in due to underfunding. Beautiful log cabins with comfortable furniture. Cabins are cleaned as soon as you leave and are spotless. Shower head and shower need improving. Beautiful scenery and self catering in cabin for those on a budget or like to cook. Needs a service where you can hire: tea towels, duvets and bathroom towels. There is a laundrette in Warminster to, do your laundry and it is an 1/2 hour walk or a 15-20 minute drive. Metal kitchen utensils need to be replaced with plastic ones to save money on pans and keep the pans from getting scratched. The fact you can hire out the lake for a week whilst there or just go for a day with £5:00 is good. Remember to go to the post office. It is £12 for a week fishing license and about £5:00 for a day. Morrisons is the nearest supermarket down the road and is a 10-15 minute drive or a 25 minute walk.

Lovely venue for a party or a quiet meals. Wonderful views of the lake

Center Parcs Longleat Forest

Warminster BA12 7PU, UK – 0344 826 7723

Center Parcs is excellent. I have visited annually for 23 years and it keeps getting better! There are 6 or 7 restaurants which cater for all tastes. There are all sorts of activities including creative activities and sports. Mid week breaks are often slightly cheaper so if pursing dates it's worth a look if budget is a consideration.

Great place for a family holiday. Lots of activities to do (although quite a few will cost you additional money). The swimming area has been recently refurbished, and is now huge; it'll keep your kids entertained for hours! Nice selection of restaurants and other shops. Also, right next door to Longleat safari park, which makes for a good place to visit on the morning of the day you leave.

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you. Just enter your location and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
