    Good morning!

    First time here, looking to get some general ideas from everyone about what they get up to outdoors and hopefully shift some kit of mine too!

    I'm from the Oxford area having moved from Cumbria, so feeling a little lost as to where to walk and camp, nowhere seems too far from civilization. If anyone knows a nice route then let me know!

    Looking forward to finding out more on here.

    Welcome Tom.

    Cotswolds or Chilterns are a poor substitute for the lakes.

    I know right? Everyone raved about them but I'm heading to Snowdonia for my next walk

    Hi Tom
    I'm sure you will find what you are looking for.
    I'm currently down on holiday in forest of Dean / Wye Valley and it's beautiful.

    The English/Welsh border area has quite a bit to offer - the southern section of the Offa's Dyke path is worth a look and the Shropshire Hills can be quiet outside of school holidays.

    The Brecon Beacons are not too far afield and are similar to parts of the Pennines IMO. You'll be able to find plenty of places to wild camp there.

    Snowdonia is your best bet though for top scenery and challenging walks, enjoy your trip.
