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

Brompton On Swale Caravan Park

Easby, Richmond, North Yorkshire, England, DL10 7EZ, Richmond DL10, UK – 01748 824629

Can't fault it for the cost...camping/caravaning is outside living....enjoy it here. It's brilliant fir the children..all ages of children sharing together .charactor building for them and under adult supervision everywhere...there always be a rogue lad or lass causing problems .but that's children..most of us have been there..so let them play...coming here again..

We have just came back from a family holiday at Brompton on Swale caravan park. We stayed in the glampods for the very first time, as we usually take a tent. Lovely staff, always friendly and welcoming. We where shown to a lovely, clean and spacious pod. We had a double airbed up and a single camp bed for our son, and still had around half the pod to move about it :) Facilities where always cleaned and smelling fresh. The only negative i would say about this site is the shop doesn't stock too much, which is understandable. Even the on site take away shop is beautiful, we had pizzas, cheesy garlic bread as well as chips and gravy/curry, all beautiful. Well worth a family holiday away from it all, you can even enjoy a spot of fishing on the site, as the river swale runs through this campsite. Whether your in a tent, glampoding or taking your own caravan, definitely a breathe of fresh air :)

Caravanman

6 Brompton Park, Brompton on Swale, Richmond DL10 7JW, UK – 01748 811613

I have used Caravanmans services a number of times now. Each time he has found a cheaper alternative to fix whatever needs fixing and his work has always stood the test of time. His services are thorough and I don't have to empty all the contents before he does it. On one occasion I had no hot water and even though it was Christmas Eve he worked late to ensure it worked before he left. Even though I live an hour and a half away I will always take my caravan to him.
