About your host

I set up the small one woman company, The Walking Woman, to act as a guide to help people to access the outdoors on foot. I have lived and walked in the countryside since childhood and have a deep understanding of the natural environment and local history. I gained the Mountain Leader Award in 2017, to gain this award I had to show that I could lead a group of walkers safely through any terrain…

What we’ll do

I host the experience in my home in Somerset. Your first activity is an indoor session learning to read a map, how to locate yourself on a map, where you have a right of way to walk and decide which direction to walk in. You will learn the simple use of a compass. This is followed by Lunch. In the afternoon you put the theory into practice with a 3 mile walk in the beautiful Somerset…

What else you should know

This experience will include walking off road on grass and tracks, there will be some short hills. We will be walking slowly but you will need to be fit enough to walk for a minimum of 3 hours.

What I’ll provide

Snacks and Lunch
Car
We may travel a short distance to start our walk, I will provide transport from my home, to the start of the walk.

What to bring

You will need to bring clothing and footwear suitable for walking in the countryside. You could include waterproofs in case of rain.
You should bring a small rucksack to carry a water bottle, waterproof clothing and some food.

Where you'll be

We'll do our theory work in the garden room of my home in Somerset. When we go out to walk I will take you a short distance to provide you with a route which shows off our lovely countryside and local history as well as challenging you to use the skills we discussed indoors. I aim to take you to places which you can only reach on foot with lovely countryside and far ranging views.
