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!

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

Normanby Hall Country Park

Normanby Rd, Normanby, Scunthorpe DN15, UK – 01724 720588

Season pass is great value, lots to see and do for children. A great place to have fun outdoors, we find something new everytime we visit. In warm days take swimsuits and towels for the kids - they will love the water park!! The museum of farming is small but well laid out with lots of interesting artifacts, we took around 30 minutes to wander around, could have happily spent longer. The walled garden is a delight. Lots of places to enjoy a picnic, we use the cafe for ice creams, but they do sell more. Landtrain fairly priced, mini rail at weekends. All staff are friendly. We always leave looking forward to our next return. Highly recommended for families.

Good place to take your children and grandchildren to let of steam. Staff very helpful and polite. Good cafe for a cuppa or snack.

The Normanby Hotel

Cosgrove

33-35 Wells St, Scunthorpe DN15 6HL, UK – 01724 279405

I usually don't write reviews, but this time, it has compelled me to write a review. I stayed at Cosgroove for a week, it's beyond my expectation from every aspect. The host, Barry, is really a nice helpful guy who made me feel the stay at my own home, away from home. The rooms are neat and clean and airy. It was a nice short stay at Cosgroove.

Host is very friendly and rooms are neat and clean..
