Nice reading, plenty of outstanding camp sites
on 7 August 2011
First of all: We didn't use it as intensely as expected. Actually, we could have done without, but for getting an apprehension of what's possible in Britain camping-wise before really starting our holidays, it was quite useful. It gives a detailed description of many extraordinary camping sites, many photos and a good idea of what to expect in an entertaining way. Of course, it doesn't cover all available camp sites in Britain but merely a small subset.
Still, the book itself is thick and heavy, so that as a cyclist or a hiker one wouldn't like to carry it around.
We'd rather have needed a concise directory of camping site in a larger area of Britain combined with some general information like level of comfort or inexpensive alternatives. This book appears to be written for people, who enjoy camping as such, but not for those, who use a tent as cheap means of accomodation.
