Very Cool campsites
on 20 May 2011
I must admit I am a bit of a fan of Cool Camping anyway, I had the previous edition of Cool Camping England so wasn't sure if I needed this update (2011) but I'm pleased I did - it's a much more professional and comprehensive book all round. There are 150 campsites now (compared to 70 in the previous edition), so it's a bigger book, and the design seems more user friendly. They still have photos of all the campsites, which I like. And the quality of the recommended campsites seems to be have been maintained. I know 2 of the new campsites already, which I know to be very good, and I've now visited another of the new ones recommended (Forgewood in Kent) which is lovely, so it's good to see they're maintaining their standards. Some of the campsites that were in the previous edition are not now in the new edition - not sure why? Does that mean they have gone downhill? The geographical coverage seems pretty good, although there is a skew towards campsites in Devon and Cornwall and the Lake District, I guess down to the quality of the campsites in those areas. Overall, a good, comprehensive update.
