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..

Haysden Country Park

Lower Haysden Ln, Tonbridge TN11 9BE, UK – 0845 824 7600

Great play area for the kids, cafe, lovely walks and cycle route around the lake. Note the cycle route has been changed recently so that you can cycle to Tonbridge park but *not* all the way around the lake - part of the lake path is walkers only. People don't seem to mind young children cycling around the walkers part though, and you can always push your bike around the last bit. This restriction knocks it down to a 4* in my opinion. Still worth visiting.

Lovely place to walk with dogs but they need to be on a lead. Cafe very limited no room for fussy eaters and only has outdoor seats.

BEST WESTERN Rose And Crown Hotel

125 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DD, UK – 0844 387 6206

Check In was friendly and efficient. The room is a little tired and the single bed isn't very comfortable. The shower pressure wasn't great but beyond those minor issues the room has everything you need. Quite comfortable enough for a few nights. The bathroom accessories are good quality and bottled water is provided. Breakfast is cooked to order and very good. Plus a basic continental buffet. No fresh fruit but all the other things.

Friendly relaxed hotel in a pleasant location. I enjoyed my stay. Suggest hotel management take keeping fire doors closed a little more seriously - better safe than sorry; otherwise all good.
