    Useful Information  
  • Lyme Regis to Poole Harbour

    The ten walks featured here highlight the best short circular walks along Dorset's iconic 'Jurassic Coast' section of the South West Coast Path. The Dorset coast is perhaps the most varied of the whole south western peninsula, encompassing glorious beaches, towering cliffs, detached stacks, long shingle banks and picturesque coves and inlets. The handiwork of man both past and present is there too, in settlement, quarrying and even oil extraction. But there is little to detract from the coast’s overall beauty — and the coast’s huge range of habitats is reflected in the sheer abundance of flowers and wildlife you’ll experience along the way.  
  • Newborough Forest and Llanddwyn Island walk
    Product Description One of nine books in the new Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path series. The Isle of Anglesey offers some of the finest coastal walking in North Wales. In just over 125 miles there are dramatic sea cliffs, quiet coves, wide sandy bays, tiny fishing villages, modern resorts, coastal hills and remains from a rich maritime heritage. The walks in this book are what I consider to be the finest routes along this superb section of coast, one of the seven main sections of the wales Coast Path.  
  • A visit to a tea shop adds something special to a walk. It’s always a treat to sit down to coffee and cake at the end of an afternoon stroll or to tuck into a hearty lunch half-way through a gorgeous hike. From quaint little tea rooms that still serve drinks in china cups to modern cafés staffed by trained baristas, the Lake District has plenty to offer — and all surrounded by a truly breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage landscape. The ten tea shops in this book have been chosen partly on the basis of the excellent walking that can be enjoyed from their doors, and partly on the basis of the fare and ambience they have to offer.  They occupy village, lakeside and woodland locations. The walks themselves take in hidden valleys, low fells, lakes, waterfalls, riverside paths, fabulous viewpoints and wildflower-filled woods — a tremendous array of the sort of scenery for which the Lake District has become world famous.
  • Discover the very best of the Lake District. Part of the Lake District’s unique attraction is its compactness. Within its boundaries are a rich mix of lakes, mountains, forests and farmland characterised by pretty villages, winding roads, deep dales and valleys, drystone walls and distinctive Herdwick and Swaledale sheep. Ready to explore? Discover the two loveliest lakeside walks, the best pub walk, and the most amazing view. Visit Cumbria’s stunning Castlerigg stone circle, scale its best-loved low and high fells, or marvel at its most dramatic waterfall. Every one is a walk to remember.
  • Top 10 Walks: National Parks: Peak District
    Discover the very best of the Peak District. These ten themed walks explore the contrasting faces of the Peaks — the gentle White and rugged Dark Peak.   Discover clear rivers and streams, ancient packhorse bridges and stepping stones. Walk through winding dales and valleys bright with wildflowers. Visit stately Chatsworth or marvel at the panorama from Monsal Head. Tour upland reservoirs and dramatic rocky edges popular with climbers. Slog up Shutlingsloe or explore the open moorland and strangely eroded tors on Kinder Edge. Every one is a walk to remember.
  • Top 10 Walks: Peak District: Walks to Viewpoints Peak District: Walks to Viewpoints
      This handy pocket size book will take you on short circular walks to the ten finest views and viewpoints in the Peak District. Views are why many of us venture into the hills and countryside in the first place. Nothing beats a sweeping view from a moorland edge or hill, or an arching panorama over a pleasant valley. Sometimes it’s just the simple pleasure of the patterns of light and shade, the textures and colours of the woodland or the flowing beauty of the stream we’re walking beside. But typically there’s a feeling that you’ve earned a great view through sheer effort – even if the easiest approach had been taken to reach it. Perhaps that’s why so many of the great Peak District views are atop minor summits, at moorland edges, or overlooking deep valleys.
