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!

Highbridge Caravan Centre

Bristol Rd, Highbridge TA9 4EX, UK – 01278 782725

Went in looking for a swift caravan and found the type we were looking for with a deal in place. Ok, so we had to approach a sales person, but I actually like the "No pressure" environment - you can look as long as you like without getting hassle about it. The main reason I'm posting this is because when I asked a question about the van I was interested in, the sales person simply told the truth - "I don't know". He then went to ask a colleague, who also didn't know and so he reverted to the van significant sheet - in front of me so I could see. It's very unusual to see that kind of honesty in a sales person!

Went to Highbrigde caravans to look for an Air awning. Bright clean display in the indoor showroom. Spoke to Jacob a member of the sales team. He was very polite, helpful and very knowledgeable about all the awnings. Answered all our questions and once we decided which awning we wanted did us a fantastic deal and even delivered it to our car. Would highly recommend this dealer.

B&M Bargains Store

Brilliant especially if you are stopping at a caravan site and need to shop on a budget. It has pretty much everything you need for the family.

Brilliant prices served quickly happily go back next time I'm on holiday

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

Coombes Cider Farm

Japonica Farm, Mark, Highbridge TA9 4QD, UK – 01278 641265

I went here a few years ago. I love my cider and this place has the lot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The prices were also very reasonable. Highly recommended and I hope to make a return visit soon.

Very warm, welcoming and friendly. Love it here.

Withy Water Fishing lake, Caravan & Campsite

Cedar Shade, Withy Grove, East Huntspill TA9 3NP, UK – 01278 783700

Excellent site, easy access. Great free fishing if staying on site. Showers and toilets always spotless. Dog field for your friendly pooches. Lots of places near by to see and do.

Just come home from a week at Withy Waters. This is one of my local favourite sites. Owners are so obliging in every way, nothing is too much trouble. They also had the sense to only allow hardstanding pitches, so site was fairly empty. Site is spotless, showers & toilets immaculate. Even tho the weather was awful we still had a great break away. Can't wait to go back in June when hopefully the sun will be out.

Westbrook Farm Touring Park

Harp Rd, Brent Knoll, Highbridge TA9 4HQ, UK – 01278 760386

Not stayed there but store our van here. Very safe and secure

We love coming here it is small but very well kept staff are great and very helpful.

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 West Huntspill School Under 5s Group 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
