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

Folkestone Camping and Caravanning Club Site

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

Lovely little site. Great pitches, at the beach and a good management team.

Stunning location, steep road to access. Nice and near channel tunnel. However staff are a bit unhelpful and the lady warden rude, they didn't even tell us when we booked that they lock the gates until 7am, and told us to park the campervan on the road so watch out if on an early Le Shuttle! It does say on the website if you hunt but we booked over the phone. The key holder even walked by holding the keys while we were waiting to leave at 6:50 and didn't even think about opening for us! We asked if they had a piece of hose to fill up the water, we just got an old watering can, whey WILL have had a hosepipe I'm sure. Toilets are OK but showers were button operated and 7 seconds between presses, stupid. If this is the only available site for the tunnel the you will be OK, but at over £30 per night I'm sure there is better. Toilets 6/10, Site (location and tidiness) 8/10, Site (staff) 3/10
