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!

WalkingWorld.jpg
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

Prattshayes Campsite & Exmouth Country Lodge

Maer Ln, Exmouth EX8 5DB, UK – 01395 276626

Spent one night there whilst backpacking. Hot showers and clean bathroom area. There's a decent bar the also serves coffee. The tent area is separate from the caravan section Sona little quieter. Gradual slope but nothing too bad for camping.

Yeah, it's OK.... Pub on the premises is excellent, we hired a cottage for my 50th birthday. The beds are comfy etc etc. Although the kitchen apparently is well equipped with one saucepan with no lid and one small sharp knife to prepare an entire meal for ten people. There was no comfy sitting area as the room was used for beds. The only sofa was a sofa bed upstairs. Parking was a pain with caravans everywhere and other people just blocking us in. I had a great time despite all this but was dampened when we got home by an email from the company asking for more money. Apparently they didn't register that a dog was being bought with us and this incurred a charge, yet it was clearly stated in our booking at the beginning that a dog would be there. Also there was a stain on the carpet..... I'm still waiting for pictorial evidence as I can't recall any stain after our final check before leaving and if there was a stain, £50 is a helluva lot of stain remover!

Saint Johns Farm

13 St John's Rd, Exmouth EX8 5EG, UK – 01395 263170

Been coming here for 20+yrs, owners are brilliant as are their family. We meet up with friends of old and have also made some new ones. The majority of the campers are quite friendly and approachable some not so, but you always get one idiot.

I love St John's farm very clean the owners John and Sue are lovely all ways there to help if needed great facilitys great place to have a holiday highly recommended

Devon Cliffs caravan holiday centre

12 Essington Cl, Exmouth EX8 4QY, UK – 07511 122322

We had a lovely weekend here and would definitely come back. The caravan was lovely and had beautiful views. The complex and the beach were a short walk away. The pool was huge and great for the kids. The beach is massive and has rock pools which the kids loved. They loved the sandy park by the swimming pool too. The evening entertainment was really enjoyable. Everyone had a great time and didn't want to leave.

Superb stay. Stayed in one of the newer vans and it was perfectly clean and very smart. Prices in the bars were reasonable for a holiday place and the grounds kept very up together. To be expected, you could be waiting at the bar or for food to come out but not surprising as it was pretty busy and more staff would have slowed service in some cases. We'll return.

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!
