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 Range, Taunton

Taunton Retail Park, Hankridge Way, Taunton TA1 2LR, UK – 01823 443540

This is a place that has a lot!! Pet beds & toys, cages. Fish tanks... Hot tubs furniture bedding, ornaments mirrors and frames. On this visit I wandered down many aisles of kitchen ware... It's a good place for essential home items at a reasonable price. Also if you are into arts and crafts there is a humongous range of items. Also for the artist or painter seems to be a good selection. Plenty here to get the kids doing something creative and away from phones/games consoles.

This shop seems to sell some of most of everything. It's like a department store for DIY, soft furnishings and home ware and kitchen accessories, pet food and pet supplies, camping and outdoor living stuff, lighting, crafting and art supplies, plants and gardening, and probably a few other things I've forgotten: I love it there, but it's not a quick store to visit because it's nice for mooching around in. It's disabled friendly, has a lift and a loo and a cafe.

Halfords

3, Hankridge Way, Taunton TA1 2LR, UK – 01823 443415

Needed emergency repair on brake blocks and the response was great. Repair was done within 20 minutes of me arriving giving just enough time to grab a Costa. Very happy with the result.

Have always had fabulous service in this Halfords. A young man helped me carry our bike up and down the stairs . Very impressed

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

Ashe Farm Caravan and Camping Site

Love this hidden gem. Basic clean tidy and very relaxing place. We have two kids who love it here. We are family local but it's a great quick getaway from day to day stuff for a chill out. Recommended.

Weekend visit. Quiet site. Good showers. Play area for children. Would recommend.

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.

'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas! If you would like to walk around Blackdown Pitminster or Somerset just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. You will not only be able to download detailed OS maps free of charge but you can read reviews of walks and their ratings - and add your own afterwards! Enjoy
