Best Places for a Good, Old-Fashioned Stroll?

#1
The other half and I are going to struggle getting away for more than a long weekend or two this Easter, so thought we would remain in the country and partake in a few little walks through the great British countryside. Thing is, neither of us really know where to go! Any travelled walkers knocking about on here got any ideas?

Depends. Do you like hills, in which case I might suggest hilly places. Or flat. In which case, river walks. How are your hip joints? Where are you based?

That last is important. If you are based in the north I may have a few suggestions. If you are based in the south, **** off you shandy drinking puff.

Did some of the SW coastal path round Mousehole, St Just & St Agnes Head last month - Spectacular. Otherwise, anywhere really. If you're round about Salisbury Plain, the Mendips or Malverns. If doing the Malverns, get some Elgar on the I.pod.

Brecon Beacons National Park.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
Snowdonia National Park.

Yes they're all in Wales. Some might see that as a disadvantage, some may not.

We stop at a camp site on Gilside farm in Glenriding. Easy access to Striding Edge and Swiril Edge, Sticks pass and the numerous other walks nearby. Last summer we spent a good deal of time over on place fell, Patterdale Hotel has a cracking pint of Stella which refreshes after a long day on the hills!

Lakes and Dales are good. Some shots from Striding Edge in the Lakes:

We did Striding Edge in zero viz on adventure training absloutly cracking fun for experienced mountaineers shame our boss wasn't, even worse wouldn't listen when we pointed out he couldn't read a map.

West Highland Way up the west coast!
That would get my vote. I do love the Dales and the wilds of Northumberland. I made my bones fell walking, climbing and skree shooting in the Lake District, but it is just too full of people these days. Up the west coast you don't even need a guide book. Just get out the car and hack off. You will not see the hand of man all day long.

Until you see a wicker-built figure hove into view in the distance....
I do not hove. I stroll elegantly. Are we clear?

We really must find that gaff on the south edge of town that we planned to buy and turn into a boutique mental asylum. From memory it is on the Leyburn road. You go over the bridge out of Richmond, up a step bank and it is on the left just before a sharp right hand bend. It is owned by the Coonsil. I require it. Find it.

Near the sewerage plant, on the way into Catterick (which is also a sewerage) or this bad bastard: 7 bedroom detached house for sale in Kimber House, Richmond, DL10

I think with your suave negotiating skills, we could get them down to a clean million.
