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

Homebase

Fairacres, Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1BY, UK – 0345 640 7620

Quite good stock, nicer layout than the other big chain, reasonably helpful staff and ok prices

Such a large choice of prices to suite every pocket. The really helpful advisor. I've not put 5 stars because a bit long wait to have fitted .

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

B&B Rafters

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

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.

The moment you enter you notice the great attention to detail that the owners have put into this B&B. This is truly is high-spec luxury B&B. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is big and modern. The breakfast is as good as everyone says (including delicious fresh fruit). Would definitely return if in the area.

Oxford Abingdon Hotel

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1TZ, UK – 01235 553456

Polite staff. Providing free breakfast because the hotel is having building work done. It's not the most modern of places at the moment. It's becoming a Hilton. Its clean and located fantastically for many of the parks in Oxfordshire.

The hotel was pretty old and work down but clean and everything was functional. It did state that major renovations would be starting the following weekend and the concept looked impressive. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were a reasonable size, would have thought breakfast should been included in the price but then again it's in the Oxford area.

Millets Farm Shop

Millets Farm Centre, Kingston Rd, Frilford, Frilford, Abingdon OX13 5HB, UK – 01865 392200

Always so friendly. There also always seems to be something new going on for all of the family. We always come home from here in a fantastic mood. A nice place to have on our door step.

Nice day out for the last Sunday in August. Had a picnic by the park loads for the kids to do nice walks good day. ☺
