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

GO Outdoors Loughborough

Bishop Meadow Rd, Loughborough LE11 5RE, UK – 0344 387 6813

A good range of products with some that are hard to find elsewhere. Some very interesting chairs. The staff were friendly and helpful. The prices are okay especially if you look out for special offers. If spending more than a few pounds, you will need to have one of their loyalty card or pay the extra! You can purchase a loyalty card for just a few pounds at the checkout. This will probably be well worth while. While there are toilets for the customers, this place could really do with a coffee shop. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are looking for outdoor clothing.

Vast array of outdoor products and the prices are great (if you have a GO outdoors discount card £5 a year) everything you could possibly need to tackle the great outdoors. This one in Loughborough has all the tents set up out the front so you can look around them all which is a great idea as you can really get a sense of how which one will be best for you. Staff are helpful.

The Range, Loughborough

Willowbrook Park, 5 Derby Rd, Loughborough LE11 5HG, UK – 01509 217757

Great shop for a browse, very wide variety of products from pens to plants, pet supplies some food items and much much more. Great price on garden slabs at the moment only £2.19 each. Range of children's toys at reasonable prices . Good quality plants in outdoor area.

Lots to see. Good variety. Staff don't seem to care enough though and some things are pricey for what they are. Some good deals though.

B&M Bargains Store

4 Willowbrook Park, Derby Road, Loughborough, Leicestershire LE11 5HG, UK – 0330 838 9027

A good store selling a broad range of branded products at discount prices. Plentiful parking, but would benefit from air conditioning in unseasonably warm weather.

No complaints. Cheap and cheerful as you would expect. Only minor thing they could improve is having more tills open at busy times.

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

Proctors Park

Proctor's Park Rd, Barrow upon Soar LE12 8QF, UK – 01509 412434

We booked without reading the reviews and were in two minds whether to go when we saw them. So glad we did though. Yes there are a number of fields with caravans stored at the entrance but the camping fields to the rear of the site were huge. We had a whole field to ourselves, it was great. We were able to have a fire at night and were not woken by other campers. The toilet / shower block is a bit of a trek from the camping fields and definitely basic, but they were clean and never any queues. Take a Porta potty and you will be fine.

Nice site. Family friendly club. Nice atmosphere. Polite staff. Lovely friendly people. Daren is polite friendly and makes people feel welcome. He is always grateful for your custome.

Rye Croft Farm caravan and lodge

Cotes Rd, Barrow upon Soar, Loughborough LE12 8JR, UK – 01509 211864

Really enjoy this place every time we visit.

Fantastic place, great communication. Friendly owners. Well recommended.

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!
'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas!

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
