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

Poppleton, a Wyevale Garden Centre

Northfield Lane, Upper Poppleton, York YO26 6QE, UK – 0844 288 5067

Would like to thank helpful staff who very understanding when our elderly dog was poorly in the store. As we have recently lost our little pal we will always remember this kindness. Great that you welcome dogs and also a great selection of healthy plants, would recommend to anyone.

The staff are really helpful. The garden centre is superb. We were going to go into York for lunch, first, but then changed our minds & had lunch at the Wyevale Garden Centre. What a disappointment! The coffee was far too weak. I don't like strong coffee, but this was so weak that we both left it. The lunch was very poor. The Leek & Davidstowe cheddar tart was very good, but the new potatoes were inedible. They were grey & looked like they had had slugs tasting them before me.I am not a fan of boiled white cabbage, to go with such a dish as this. My wife's gammon ham, egg & chips was a surprise. Cold ham does not usually go in place of hot gammon. Very strange combination,. The eggs were good as were the chips. But, come on you cooks at Wyevale. You can do better than this. Let's hope the new kitchen assistant you are advertising for has more of an idea. Finally, having the very good looking scones right in front of the customers, uncovered, is not very hygienic, either. The quality of the food is just as important as the quality of your plants.

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

Grantchester Caravan And Camping

Grantchester/Stripe Lane, York YO30 1YJ, UK – 07472 694380

A little tricky to find, but a great little site. Facilities are ideal for short or overnight stays - it helps that it was sunny when we camped, so everything was scenic and clean. My daughter, wife and I were very pleased with how tidy, well presented and convenient it was for local food, etc. Will definitely be going back soon. The owners were lovely, very approachable and helpful. Highly recommended for small families, tents and vans.

Great little campsite for motor homes, tents and caravans just outside of York. The toilets and shower are all clean but aren't separated by gender (it's a unisex building). Electricity costs are a bit steep, at £4, but otherwise the camping prices are, given that it's just a 15 minute bike to York's city centre, completely fair. The camping does have a limit of 4 motor homes or buses (a permit thing) and I'd therefore recommend you'd phone ahead if you're running a bit late.
