Lace up your boots and hitch up your socks - there are thousands of miles of walking routes around the UK and Ireland. You can stroll a gentle mile outside - or around - your holiday park smiling dreamily at the trees, or you can tackle one of the many long-distance trails all around the country from coast to countryside to dale and moor: whether you do it all and camp along the way, or do parts of it daily and stagger back to base each night, we're sure to have a suitable pitch for you nearby.
There's no need to miss out if you have kids in tow, if you're bringing your dog camping
, or if the only exercise you get is lifting the remote control - the walks in Britain are for all groups and all levels of fitness. In Scotland's national park of the Cairngorms, for example, walks range from an easy three-kilometre beginner category to a rigorous 16-km 'mountain challenge'.
Intrepid trekkers could try the South West Coast Path
, the longest National Trail in Britain and one of many cracking walks in the South West, and on the Jurassic Coast, Britain's only natural World Heritage site and tracing millions of years of history. Or there's the newest long-distance trail in the country, the Wales Coast Path
at 870 miles, or spotting seals at Hilbre Island on the Wirral, wandering through the famous and inspiring Lake District, or being literary and following the Tarka Trail
in Devon, the Tolkien Trail
in the Pennines or hiking Thomas Hardy country
. Or you could just let your feet find a path for you, with our hundreds of sites listed near a walkers' paradise
After walking all day you'll want to sink down in comfort: our sites cover all types of camping accommodation, from bringing your own tent to staying in a luxury hired caravan or camping pod, with filters to make things even more comfy: a bath
or hot tub
on site to soak the feet, or parks with a launderette on site
to sort out the socks.
