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

J Gliddon & Sons Ltd

2 Bank St, Williton, Taunton TA4 4NH, UK – 01984 632761

Gliddons is a prime example of an institution shop. They have everything and more that you need and want. The staff and service are superb, prepared to go that extra mile when needed (thanks Gliddons).

Great hardware shop, sells just about everything including calor gas

Torre Cider Co

Torre Cider Co Ltd, Washford, Somerset TA23 0LA, UK – 01984 640004

Brilliant place, not very well signposted but so worth a visit. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Gave us a taster to choose what cider we wanted, and in choosing some jam. The cafe was just as good. 4 drink £6.... no where have I seen that. Good honest food and pricing. The only place left in the UK I think. Thank you for our visit.

We loved it here. We booked a weekend away here with out kid and he also loved it here too. They have freshly made cider that they make on site and a store filled with so many goodies of chocolate, biscuits and cider. We stayed in a self catering apartment that was great for us as we didn't feel so tied down to getting out the room like a hotel or B&B. They have a great play area and also a mini farm that our kid loved. They also have an old tracker that you could sit on and play with. They had a good range of food just in case you didn't want to make breakfast or lunch which was super handy and felt like we was getting the best of both worlds with a self catering apartment and somewhere to to eat out. I would highly recommend this place if you have children or if you're travelling as a couple. It's a great place, very friendly and relaxed.

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

Hoburne Blue Anchor Holiday Park

Blue Anchor Bay Rd, Blue Anchor, Minehead TA24 6JT, UK – 01425 282358

Very nice camp site, mainly static vans, there is a field for touring vans and campervan. Nice shower block, swimming pool, child play area, crazy golf and a coffee shop with adjoining small shop. The site is along side the West Somerset Railway, Blue Anchor station five minutes walk. Ideal for people who love steam trains, young and old. Driftwood Cafe is a short walk, on the way to the station. In the other direction, The Blue Anchor Pub, serving good food.

Lovely site for touring caravans. Toile blocks are to a good standard with free showers. Site is quite flat and level so easy to sort out your caravan. A short walk to the beach, although across a road, but not a big deal. The shop has recently been refurbished to a good standard with a nice cafe, prices are reasonable on the whole but £7.50 for 4 cans of beer was excessive. Other products were reasonably priced. They don't sell camping and caravanning stuff just yet - a trip out was necessary to but toilet additive for the caravan. Two pubs within a short walk, but the nearest convenience store I about a 5-10 minute drive. The on-site pool is nice, and the staff are great. Will be staying again in the near future.

Beeches Holiday Park

Blue Anchor, Minehead TA24 6JW, UK – 01984 640391

This is not just a holiday park there are people who are here all year. The swimming pool is outdoor but is heated. Some caravans are for hire therefore the pool is busy in school holidays. Quiet site with good views overlooking the Bristol Channel

Wonderful park with very friendly and helpful management. Great pool and absolutely spotless caravans/site. 10/10!

Riverside Cottage

Huish Ln, Washford, Watchet TA23 0GD, UK – 01984 639980

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! If you would like to walk around Watchet or Somerset just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. 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
