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

Dobbies Garden Centre

Blackpool Rd, Clifton PR4 0XL, UK – 01772 683844

Helpful staff. Pleasant place to meet friends in the restaurant area. What a pity that the scones and cakes etc are not covered and better protected.

Had the most fantastic lunch in the restaurant. The salad bar is wonderful, lots of choice and interesting items, not the usual boring stuff. Very reasonable price too. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you all

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 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

Lamaleach Park Estates

Lamaleach Drive, Freckleton, Preston PR4 1ET, UK – 01772 632246

My views as a visitor are clean, neat, tidy - as the Germans say "everything in order". Site backs onto BAe's Warton runway so good for plane buffs!

I've lived on Lamaleach Park Estates for 13 years and love it,

Preston Caravans and Motorhomes

Blackpool Rd, Preston PR4 0XL, UK – 01772 685949

Copy of the review sent by e-mail from Mark and Terri Thomas We bought our caravan from PC&M Having visited the show in October 2016. We dealt with Kim who really helped to choose the right van for us, and gave us a great deal too. There were a few issues with the van when we went to collect it. However Preston caravans have since resolved all of these. It's at this point when you find out how good your dealer is. We've had a really good experience buying through Preston. All of the staff we met in sales, after sales, mechanics, to those in the shop were so helpful and pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. We would certainly buy from Preston Caravans again should we decide to change the van in the future.

What can I say .... AMAZING service from beginning to end. Went to have a look round for my first camper. Lost wasn't the word. As such a wide selection of choice. But the sales person was fantastic talked me through everything I needed to know. And let me make my own choices. Wasn't pushy at all which made a big difference to us. Collection went smooth and more questions answered on the day. Can't wait to get on the road on our little camper holidays. Will definitely be going back again

Premier Inn Preston West

Blackpool Road, Preston PR4 0XB, UK – 0871 527 8918

We needed a bed for the night and this premiere inn was adequate. Could definitely do with a bit of modernising. Breakfast and meals served in Hungry Horse restaurant next door.

Very tired looking, but friendly and accommodating staff. Was disappointed with the breakfast, burnt sausages served upside down to hide the burnt side, poached eggs were drowning in water, and several people had to ask for things like the coffee and hot water flasks and milk jug to be refilled, which shouldn't really happen... But wouldn't rule out staying again if necessary...
