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!

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

YHA Okehampton Youth Hostel

Klondyke Rd, Okehampton EX20 1EW, UK – 01837 53916

We stayed here with a large group, who rented the hostel for the weekend. I couldn't fault it: There were lots of smaller dorms of about 4 or 6 beds, which we preferred to the hostels that have a smaller number of much larger dormitories. The hostel was perfectly clean and had everything we needed. We catered for ourselves, so we didn't get to try the hostels own catering options, but we looked at the menus and prices and on the strength of those we would definitely return to this hostel as regular backpacking visitors. A very good hostel.

A quick visit as part of the moorotters search via bike - plan to come back another time for a cafe stop and see what else is there

O'Connors Campers

Highlands, Old Rd, Okehampton EX20 1SP, UK – 01837 659599

Amazing experience and amazing people. O'Connors are absolutely lovely to deal with and are obviously passionate about their vans. We've taken Barbarossa and Noddy Windsor on holiday with us - they both forced us to slow our pace and enjoy the experience of driving them as well as appreciating the beautiful coast and countryside of the South West. Too many highlights to mention here but if you take out a vintage van, expect people to stop and chat with you and wave to you when you are on the road - highly enjoyable! Oh yes, and make sure you overtake a tractor! Can't wait for our next trip.

Exceptional customer service throughout the efficient booking out and in process. We've been met by the very friendly and enthusiastic O'Connors team at the beginning of each of our VW Camper Van holidays who've sent us away with a well maintained California Ocean. Perfect for touring in comfort with the all mod cons and plenty of style. Be careful though, coming to O'Connors Campers once will not be enough, you will be hooked and be back for another great holiday experience before you know it.
