Find the best Ossett walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Ossett area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Go Outdoors

Hostingley Ln, Middlestown, Wakefield WF4 4PZ, UK – 0344 387 6804

Went into the Wakefield store today with my teenage son to buy him some walking boots for a trip to Scotland. The guy who assisted us was really knowledgeable and helpful. He gave us lots of advice on the different styles boots and recommended a good value/sturdy pair (which we went with), how to fasten them correctly and after care advice to keep them in good condition for longer. You wouldn't get that kind of service just buying on the internet!

Just bought our second tent from here today, we was looked after by a lovely man called Martin, he was very helpful and answered all our questions we had on the tent, he was very knowledgeable about the tents and made our purchase easy and stress free, They was very busy in store but didn’t feel rushed, great customer service! Thanks again for the help

Outdoor World Direct

Unit 7, Roundwood Industrial Estate, Wakefield Road, Wakefield, Ossett, Wakefield WF5 9SQ, UK – 01924 265457

Went at the weekend to look at a tent we wanted that they had up on show! Have never been here before as we always go to Go Outdoors! We were greeted by a very chatty lovely sales women Laura who made us very welcome yet didn’t bombard us, we were even offered a drink while we were browsing! After looking at all the tents we decided which one we wanted, every thing we asked about our new tent was answered very honestly by Laura (such a lovely girl)There were a couple of deals on our tent but we wanted other things like an extra carpet and electric pump so we then met Phil ( who was also lovely) think he was the Manager, we then went through everything that we wanted and he did a fantastic deal for us! Helped us with everything we needed, even carried everything to the car, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC FRIENDLY SERVICE!!!!!! We won’t be going to Go Outdoors again, this is our new camping shop!! Thankyou Laura and Philip for making our first visit a lot less stressful as we thought it would be!!!! Will see you both again soon 😄

Fantastic shop with great helpful staff, can’t believe I didn’t know it was there till now! Will definitely be returning, such a large tent showroom with huge selection. They will also pitch any tent if you want to see what it’s like before you buy.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Savile Town Wharf Marina CL

Dewsbury WF12 9BD, UK

We stayed at Savile Town wharf marina whilst travelling north to a wedding in Hexham, it provided a convenient overnight stop for us as it was not a great distance from The Hepworth at Wakefield, another place we wanted to visit. The site was easy to find and all the pitches are hard standing and level. Electricity hookup and water hookup are both available. It is quite and peaceful. The Leggers inn is a short distance away and this did not disturb us either. Dogs can be walked around the marina and there is a walk alongside the canal on the otherside. Perfect for an overnight stop.

Looking for dog friendly cottages around Ossett? The 'Dog Friendly Cottages' website looks like any other self-catering accommodation website but every single one should be dog friendly! This saves worrying and going through all the small print. However you you may need to check with the owner where the dog is expected to sleep and the what size of dog you can have!
Dog People find this is such a great website. If you have dogs who go on holiday with you just enter WF5 8QU and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
'Walks with Buggies' is a must for walking parents with young children, babies or even grannies and grandpas! If you would like to walk around Ossett or West Yorkshire just select your nearest town, length of walk and type of walk. You will not only be able to download detailed OS maps free of charge but you can read reviews of walks and their ratings - and add your own afterwards! Enjoy
