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

Delves Lane, Consett, County Durham DH8 7ES, UK – 0330 838 9519

I really like this store. The staff are usually friendly and helpful. Only once have I met a bored member of staff! They sell an amazing range of products, bird food as you walk through the side entrance and gardening products such as gravel & plants through the front entrance. They sell tinned and packaged foods with a new freezer section recently opened. Then the Aladdin's cave of toy's, bedding, furniture, children's clothes, curtains, blinds, d.I.y, paints, car mats, cleaning products, pet food, garden spades and more! They are usually good quality just incredibly cheap compared to other shops/supermarkets.

Have just bought small side tables yesterday, and back again today for the Newsham coffee table, excellent value. Male member of staff on shopfloor small dark hair brought them out of stockroom and helped me to car. Fab customer service lovely helpful staff. Thank you. A White.

Sports Direct

C1-C2, Hermiston Retail Park, Consett DH8 5SB, UK – 0343 777 1294

Very friendly and helpful. Pnly downsize is the layout. As with all of these stores it is crammed together which makes it hard to access with pushchairs, prams or wheelchairs.

Plenty parking space, staff pleasant but did have to wait for help but they were busy and only saw two people working the shoe/trainers section

Matalan

Hermiston Retail Park, Consett DH8 5SB, UK – 0333 004 4444

Very little choice of "fashion" clothing for the female of mature years. We do like to be fashionable without dressing like younger peers. Household goods are reasonably priced. Basically you get what you pay for across the store

Good range of clothing and home products. Lovely staff

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

Allensford Holiday Park

Allensford Holiday Park, Pemberton Rd, Consett DH8 9BA, UK – 07584 633850

Great place to visit with your family and very dog friendly! Recommend walking through the various paths in the woods and going down by the river. The little cafe serves delicious food and also is fully licensed so you can enjoy a pint or two!

Good place dog friendly nice area to walk your dogs pups etc good picknick area nice cafe sells doggy ice cream lol

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 Hunstanworth or County Durham 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
