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

TOFS - The Original Factory Shop

45 High St, Ilfracombe EX34 9QB, UK – 01271 863740

The usual range of pretty much everything from these sorts of stores. Found what we wanted and it was good value. If you have a pushchair or wheelchair note that they have pretty narrow aisles

Always handy and helpful....

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

Watermouth Valley Camping Park

Watermouth, Ilfracombe EX34 9SJ, UK – 01271 862282

A friendly family run site welcoming walkers of the SWCP . Beautiful valley stunning views of golden cove.

A great place but there is sadly still children on the park at 10:30pm to 11:00pm

John Fowler Holiday Parks

Marlborough Rd, Ilfracombe EX34 8PF, UK – 0844 686 5643

Good budget holiday but difficult to sleep with the lively night life, audible through the thin walls. Kids weren't too badly disturbed thankfully

Great for kids, you can use the pool even if you are not a guest.

Watermouth Cove Holiday Park

Watermouth, Ilfracombe, Berrynarbor EX34 9SJ, UK – 01271 862504

Had a fab holiday. The park was brilliant and the staff were all lovely. The park is really dog friendly with a fully enclosed dog walking field which is very handy. The only problem was the temperature of the showers as they weren't very warm however the toilets were always kept clean and we're very modern.

Great family site, especially suited to those wanting water activities. Ideal for kayaking and sup. Friendly helpful staff with great facilities. I have been two years running and will definitely book again.

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!
