RambleFest Home Page

Welcome to the RambleFest Home Page

RambleFest details information on rambling in the Great British countryside, including accommodation, guidebooks, maps, where to eat and drink, and public transport.


Signpost on the Pennine Way

For Long-Distance Footpaths, we list accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, and public transport. Most of the Long-Distance Footpath accommodation and other services we list are either on or very close to the long-distance footpath under which they are listed. However, in recognition that many people will be walking the route in separate stages, or maybe only interested in a particular section of the path, we also include those villages or towns further afield which have a railway station or other good public transport links. We also display available guidebooks and maps, for which we provide the facility of buying online. The maps we usually display are the most detailed commercially available: the excellent Ordnance Survey “Explorer” maps at 1:25,000 scale. The other maps we display are those which comprise sections of the OS maps). Here is an example of the Guidebooks and Maps we display:

For National ParksAreas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Counties, we only provide information on guidebooks and maps, although we welcome suggestions for accommodation and other services.

If you cannot easily find what you seek, please use the Search Box near the top of the page, which displays results for this site only.
We are continually updating our information, and welcome input and contributions, whether they are photographs, logs of a long-distance footpath walk, or simply info on whether a certain pub sells real ale or provides food.

All our listings are completely free, although we do accept optional payment entirely at your discretion. If you have accommodation, pub, restaurant, etc. which you would like added or updated, please do so using our Contact Us page.
