AS camping continues to gain popularity among British holiday-makers, one of the UK’s best camping guide publishers has created the first ever Cool Camping Britain, a bumper guide featuring 150 of the best campsites around Britain and including 50 new campsite finds.
On sale from 1 May for £16.95, Cool Camping Britain is the best way to find your feet in the jam-packed world of British campsites. Featuring 93 campsites in England, 32 in Wales, and 25 in Scotland, it also helps campers to discover some of the best holiday locations in the UK.
Whether you want an idyllic country break or a pitch at the foot of a mountain, rugged and remote islands or sunny south coast beaches, this guide has something to suit all tastes. The authors inspect all the campsites, and the guide provides reviews, photographs, details of each site’s facilities, and what to do in the local area including the best places to eat and drink.
Founder of Cool Camping Jonathan Knight said, “We’ve really brought together the ‘best of British’ for this edition, making it the essential guide for camping fans to explore some incredible new finds across England, Wales and Scotland.”
“One of my personal favourites is The Secret Campsite in Sussex. With just 15 pitches, it’s exclusive enough but it’s the unusual entrance to the camping meadow that sets the tone for a special, chilled-out stay – a disused railway bridge, over which you must pull all your kit in a trolley.”
Fellow author Richard loves Cleadale campsite, on the Scottish isle of Eigg. It is located beneath a cliff frequented by eagles, with views of the Middle-earth mountains of Rum. Mountain-biking author Alf loves Beudy Banc campsite near Machynlleth, blessed with its own private track and close to all of North Wales’ world-class trail centres.
A host of experienced travel writers including Dixie Wills (Guardian eco-writer), Martin Dunford (co-founder of Rough Guides) and Sam Pow (author of Cool Camping Guide to Festivals) have also contributed to the glovebox-friendly guide.
Cool Camping Britain is available at all good book stores, or order it online at www.coolcamping.co.uk.
