Time Out Book of Country Walks

This is the number one books I recommend which give detailed instructions for day walks outside of London in the surrounding countryside (as opposed to within the city itself). I wholeheartedly recommend them and if you want to find out more about why I think they are so good, you can read more here.

* You don’t need a car!
* You don’t need to take a packed lunch as all the walks go past a cosy country pub AND a tea shop!
* You don’t need to buy a map; the instructions are incredibly detailed!
* You can walk on your own or do these walks with groups if you want to!


A Coast to Coast Journal

A coast to coast journal

Coast to Coast journal extract

This chunky zine is reproduced from drawings, doodles, cartoons and sketches I made whilst on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk across England in 2010; a life changing, 2-week walk across England.

I pretty much drew them straight down in the moleskine journal without any editing or pre-sketching. The only thing I did to clean the images up when preparing the images for printing in the zine was to try to clean up some of the water marks that had unfortunately smudged some of the drawings (as for how the water got there in the first place, you’ll have to read the zine!).

Ambleside in a Nutshell (PDF)

Brief guide to Ambleside Lake District

The Lake District is a ‘must visit’ location for everyone who loves great walking in Britain. But if you asked me where to stay for your first visit, I’d have to recommend Ambleside; I’ve been visiting this village for years and I’ve used it as the base for some incredible hiking adventures.

I often get asked for advice on walking holidays there, so I created a PDF full of my own personal best tips and honest ‘been there, done that’ recommendations for making the best of Ambleside.

The Ambleside in a Nutshell guide includes ideas for activities, rainy day activities, places to eat, how to get there by public transport or driving, getting around, and lots more. And it contains a ton of great walking suggestions and ideas, including 8 ‘easy’ walk ideas, 3 ‘medium’ walk ideas, and 4 ‘hard’ walk ideas.

It answers questions like: Where do I get buses from? Where can I catch buses to (and how long does it take)? How do I get there by car? How do I get there by train/bus? How much can I expect to pay for parking? Where can I hire cycles? What are the great independent/interesting shops to look out for? What walks can I do? Where are the cash machines? Where’s the tourist information office? Where is nice to eat? What sort of activities can I do from there? Where are the public toilets (and are any of them free)? Where is good for getting picnic supplies for my walks? …and loads more.

Trail Walking for First Timers: Plan, Organise and Prep for Your First Long Distance Path

A 3 week, 10 part online course

Trail Walking for First Timers

I’ve walked the West Highland Way, South Downs Way, North Downs Way, Ridgeway, Pennine Way, Coast to Coast, Glyndwrs Way, Cumbria Way, Thames Path (London section), Pembrokeshire Coast Path and most recently the Dales Way (alone, whilst pregnant!)

I’ve done all my walks on a DIY basis. In other words, I booked and organised them myself rather than through a travel agent, and I carried my own backpack too. I am not an expert, and I’m not super human. If I can do it, YOU CAN TOO.

If you’ve ever dreamed about doing this one day, this could be the kickstarter that finally gets you on to the trail.

In this 3 week, 10 part online course, I’ll show you step by step how you can:

1) CHOOSE the right British trail for you and gather your key resources
2) PLAN, BOOK and ORGANISE your first British long distance path
3) Be fully PREPARED for walking it later in the year!

. . . EVEN if you are nervous. . . EVEN if you feel totally unprepared. . . ESPECIALLY if you never get around to it because life always gets in the way

I’ll take you STEP by STEP through the process from “I don’t know what trail to do” to helping YOU making key decisions, organise your British trail yourself and have everything prepared.

This online course is delivered through emails, videos, PDFs and downloadable checklists.

Please note: Trail Walking for First Timers comes as a free bonus within the Walk Your Weekends package (see below for more info) or you can buy it separately here:
