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

The Range, Folkestone

Firs Ln, Folkestone CT19 4QE, UK – 01303 271698

Good choice of items, some very cheap, some very expensive. Long queues at checkouts. Staff were very nice.

Has some lovely homely bits and bobs.. Brought lots of stuff for my new home! Staff aren't useless or amazing.. They just get on with it. Never had bad customer service but never been great! Great products though

Shop4Scouts

Shepway Cl, Folkestone CT19 5SJ, UK – 01303 246324

Very helpful and have a fair amount of stock for a small shop.

Brilliant customer service both in person and online. Highly recommended for anything Scouty

Homebase - Folkestone

Park Farm Rd, Folkestone CT19 5FJ, UK – 0345 646 3834

Staff much more motivated and helpful recently since new store opening announced. Even the old store is now more pleasurable to visit.

Very helpful and had what we need every time

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

Folkestone Camping and Caravanning Club Site

The Warren, Folkestone CT19 6NQ, UK – 01303 255093

T We have been coming to The Warren for years. We love the atmosphere and the other campers. The staff have usually been helpful and kind.just one season when they weren't. No signal for my phone but l survive and my phone always changes to French time.! If you are looking for a laid back weekend with excellent shower and laundry block .lovely beach walks and Folkestone shopping and beaches within walking distance then The Warren willl delight you. Well behaved dogs are welcome and usually the children are equally good! No swings or other activities but the beach is a two minute walk away.

Shame we couldn't have stayed longer but due to a booking error by me we had no electric. It looked a lovely site and very busy. Beware of the tight access. Busy single track road down to the beach is also the access to the site and it was very busy even outside of school holidays

Little Switzerland

Wear Bay Rd, Folkestone CT19 6PS, UK – 01303 252168

Love this place on a sunny day. Great views and fresh air. You can camp here too. Staff is friendly and food is nice. We come here for a morning coffee to enjoy the views. Not much parking here. It can get cramped with cars quickly. They take only cash.

We didn't camp or stay here but just visited the cafe for Sunday breakfast. It's set high above Folkestone near the Warren and has amazing views. Facilities look good and it was very busy. The cafe is dog friendly.

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 Shorncliffe or Kent 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
