The Great Outdoors is a British television sitcom.

The show follows the friendships of a misfit rambling club in Southern England in which patronising group-leader Bob (Mark Heap) becomes embroiled in a battle of wills against new arrival and deputy group-leader Christine (Ruth Jones), who is determined that things should be done her way. She previously lived and rambled in Barnstaple and appears to have obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.

The show comprised three episodes, first airing on Wednesdays between 28 July and 12 August 2010 on BBC Four.
