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

B&M Home Store with Garden Centre

Pool Industrial Estate, Station Road, Redruth, Pool, Cornwall TR15 3QJ, UK – 0330 838 9544

Great love shopping here. Never come with a time frame. Always spend more than planned.

Good brands at a fraction of the price elsewhere. Lots of choice.

The shoe box

52 Trelowarren St, Camborne TR14 8AH, UK – 01209 713952

Bought some nice shoes at a good price.

Absolutely lovely shop the lady who owns it is excellent and really really helpful. Will absolutely recommend.

Halfords

1, 83-87 Trevenson Rd, Pool, Redruth TR15 3PS, UK – 01209 720010

About the biggest Halfords I've been to. Plenty of free level parking outside. The store is fully accessible, and the huge cycling department upstairs is accessible by lift or stairs. Superstores are great aren't they? There's a huge range of products and extensive choices available, as long as you don't mind spending ages hunting around the place to find what you want. Places this big should have a help desk at the entrance and free maps to locate items. The lady who was at the checkout was pleasant enough, but overall not the best shopping experience.

As with most halfords stores I've been too, they tend to operate with barely enough staff to offer any kind of attentive customer service. If you're looking at stereos or sat navs then there's usually a young know it all assistant that's more than happy to swoop in and offer advice but stand near the car seats (for say 20 mins trying to choose) and you get looked at by the same staff member as he walks off and talks to a customer 3 Isles over looking for car seat covers. If you know what you want and are prepared to just go and find it then this store has a lot to offer. If you want advice then just pray it's area of interest for the shop assistant to show off his man prowess and technical knowledge. This store does excel with its bulb fitting service. There's always someone that magically appears to offer to do this for you and charge £5 or so for 2 mins work.

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

Magor Farm Campsite

Magor Farm, Magor Hill, Camborne TR14 0JF, UK – 01209 713367

Great (but basic) massive family friendly campsite. Watch the kids go feral! For the adults you can have a fire and a chat without getting in trouble with the usual officious owners. Laid back heaven but If you want more than a field, loo and shower go to Newquay.

I love this campsite. So peaceful. It’s simple but with perfectly good showers etc. Lovely owners. Fantastic walks locally and everything else a short drive away. Will hope to return.

Lavender Fields Touring Park

Lavender Fields, Penhale Rd, Carnhell Green, Carnhell Green, TR14 0LU, UK – 01209 831122

The site is in a very quiet location, with beautiful views of the Cornish country side. Pitches are a good size with electric hook up and running water. Toilet block and wash up are both very clean and well appointed. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, who have been very helpful. Our two children very much enjoyed the space on the site to ride bikes and play with other children. Would highly recommend. Thank you.

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 Camborne or Cornwall 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
