5.0 out of 5 stars North Yorkshire - stay, enjoy
North Yorkshire is a magical place - and this beautifully written book takes you on a journey, introducing some of the joys it offers. The writing style is gentle but informative - certainly inviting, and the added dimension of selected places to stay from the Alastair Sawday collection is a wonderfully complementary bonus.

2.0 out of 5 stars very slow yorkshire
It was not as good as anticipated. Lots of same old stuff nothing really novel with it. Doesn't even do anything in Vale of Mowbray and only a short entry on the county town.

5.0 out of 5 stars North Yorkshire - stay, enjoy, 4 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Slow North Yorkshire: Moors, Dales & Coast, including York (Bradt Travel Guides (Slow Travel)) (Paperback)
North Yorkshire is a magical place - and this beautifully written book takes you on a journey, introducing some of the joys it offers. The writing style is gentle but informative - certainly inviting, and the added dimension of selected places to stay from the Alastair Sawday collection is a wonderfully complementary bonus.

But this is a slow guide - take the time to enjoy the beauty of the sights, the environment and the people.

I know the area well - this is a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars North Yorkshire and Sawday B&Bs, 5 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Slow North Yorkshire: Moors, Dales & Coast, including York (Bradt Travel Guides (Slow Travel)) (Paperback)
I have long been a fan of Sawday's books but have to confess that this is the first book I've read by Mike Bagshaw.
And what a treat it's been - written with wit and understanding of the area and its people.
As the daughter of a Yorkshire woman who trained at the same college as Bagshaw, I have long been familiar with many of the placenames, but it is a delightful book and a charming link to the ever reliable Sawday's B&Bs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have to explore North Yorkshire, 25 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Slow North Yorkshire: Moors, Dales & Coast, including York (Bradt Travel Guides (Slow Travel)) (Paperback)
A detailed look at some great places in a fascinating and diverse county, well written and informative. A must have for holidays in the great County. Would be great if Mike could write something similar for Northumberland or the Lakes.

This review is from: Slow North Yorkshire: Moors, Dales & Coast, including York (Bradt Travel Guides (Slow Travel)) (Paperback)
Not only much information, but nicely written, not a summary of facts. An agreeable way to start your holiday in your armchair.
