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

B&Q

11 Nuffield Way, Abingdon OX14 1RL, UK – 01235 550022

Helpful staff. Have loads in stock or next day. Burger van on site during the week. Easy layout of shop can find what you need easily

This is a massive b&q the largest one I have ever visited, good stock, lots of choice, helpful assistants when help is required.

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 country. 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..

Camping and Caravaning

Dog House

Faringdon Rd, Abingdon OX13 6QJ, UK – 01865 390830

Beautiful restaurant with lovely atmosphere. Food was good. Staff were very rude and inattentive. Had to ask a few times for dessert menus and to get drinks. Kids food arrived piping hot so it had to be left for a good ten minutes to cool down. I would come back as it was a good family restaurant but would hope the staff were different.

Lovelg atmosphere. Really friendly staff. Food was quite nice served very quickly.

B&B Rafters

Abingdon Rd, Marcham, Abingdon OX13 6NU, UK – 01865 391298

Excellent place to stay . They have a very smart and well thought out b&b. Well pleased and the breakfast and owners were very nice too .

A cosy but modern atmosphere, incredibly well priced for both the area and the quality. I had a single room so wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was. In room tea and coffee was excellent quality, with fresh milk available. The bathroom had an incredible shower and everything was spotless. Breakfast had a good selection for hot breakfast, a little more limited otherwise but it was all of excellent quality. Would stay again if in the area.
