Another good book from the Cool Camping gang, this time family campsites get the treatment. It's almost 300 pages and has 60 campsites, so it's a fair bit bigger than their usual guides, and there are some real crackers! We've just got back from Noongallas in Cornwall based on the recommendation in this book, and it's one of the nicest sites I've been too. Campfires are allowed, and it's a beautiful countryside spot not far from Cornwall's beaches. The book also has a quick reference list of sites that allow campfires, which is useful. There are a couple of 'fancy' sites included ­- Featherdown Farms, La Rosa and a couple of tipi places,but most of the campsites are small, peaceful traditional sites and ones that allow campfires. I already know some of them, but most of them are new to me, so looking forward to a long, hot summer of camping!

This book is so great. It even tells you about a horse-drawn gypsy caravan ... how I would have loved that as a child. The pics are gorgeous and makes me want to get my kids running around in the countryside again. Some of the sites in the book were just £12 a night for a tent too! How cool is that?

Not really sure wether to review this or not as the campsites in it look so amazing that we think they should be kept secret!!! Love the book and cant wait to go. Booked one already and trying to decide on the next. If they do another one we would love more sites, even basic ones, in Scotland...North and West. Our 4 kids love looking at the book to. A great gift for any family who love the outdoors.

Good Points
This book is thorough and well researched. It does give a good variety of campsites in all corners of the country. Some of the campsites are so far off the beaten track they would be very difficult to find so the guides are really helpful to highlight these places. It covers what you can do if the weather isn't ideal in each location.

Bad Points
My main gripe about the book is the spread across the country. There are 60 campsites recommended. Ten are north of Manchester. If you are from Scotland (like me) the choice is very poor. A few of the campsites are attractive to kids in that they have wide open safe spaces but not much else to do. The camping games guidance is useless unless you have a very large group and the campsite food is not great.

This is a great book. It has some amazing campsites in it and they all look special, but there is the full range from those with very basic facilities to those where the tents are already up and you just move in. The best thing i that all the entries have photos and they tell you what fun there is for kids on site and off site as well as where to go when it rains.

I am really looking forward to trying out some of these sites over the next few years.

Enjoy

Since buying this book I have used it several times over the summer to find campsites for ourselves and friends, all with children. It provides a very accurate and humourous account of cool campsites. We have visited three of the campsites in the book and enjoyed every one. It really is a book no family should be without if you want to take the kids camping. Highly recommended.

we have just started camping with our to toddlers and instead of just picking a camp site at random thought it best to get a bit of background before turning up with two children under 4 years. we have used this book a couple of times now and the advise has been a great help. the camp sites we have chosen so far have been just as stated in the book. so more happy camping trip ahead we will be referring to this book very often.

One small complaint about this book - putting most of the parenting advice about camping into a special chapter for 'Mums' is very 1950s and distinctly not cool.
I suppose it's also slightly disingenuous to preach camping minimalism while having such sumptuous images of things like cast iron tripods (very expensive), retro enamelware, dutch ovens, and other paraphernalia which is actually quite costly.
Setting these matters aside, it's good fun and does what it intends to which is fire you up about getting out camping.
