This book is beautifully written, fun and wholly inspirational and certainly myself or my children will never have an excuse to be bored with so many fab ideas to get out and about in the countryside, truly delicious recipes (the elderflower champagne is a real winner!), hilarious game concepts from house gymnastics to tight racing this book has got it all - a truly entertaining and informative read which should be an essential companion for every household.

Received my copy in the post yesterday, just in time for a spot of planning before our beach trip this weekend. I love it! Have been totally inspired to have a go at some of the games and activities and even try out making a seafood steamer in the sand. There are also some great picnic recipes in there and am keen to have a go at making my own elderflower cordial which seems to be really easy to do. The cover and illustrations are beautiful and I highly recommend anyone to buy this book!

Was given this as a gift and love it so much have just bought two copies to give to friends as birthday presents. Full of ingenious ideas I've never heard anywhere before. Funny and sharply written too, plus has some lovely summery quotes and titbits sprinkled throughout. Has got me day dreaming about long hot august days...
