Product Description

Review

'Stephen has taken the hard work out of locating your own pitch in paradise. And when I say paradise I don't mean just a hop, skip and a jump away - I mean right there. Once the waves or the fish or the rays have been caught, you can pop the kettle on, cook up your catch or just take it easy, right there at the very edge, where the sea meets the land, where it matters. These are the places that make you go 'wow'!' -- Martin Dorey, Presenter Of One Man And His Campervan

'The best campsites are by the water. The best place to find them is in this book. This is an indispensable guide for lovers of camping and watersports.' --John Kelly Song of the Paddle

Camping by the Waterside helps to plan the perfect trip, to locations that tick all the boxes. It's already shown me a few places I'd like to explore.' --Elton Murphy anglersnet.co.uk

'Flick through this book, grab your board and your tent, and go explore our spectacular coastlines.' --Campaigns Director, Surfers Against Sewage Andy Cummins

This is a beautiful looking book - stunning pictures, brilliantly laid out. Packed with not only campsite reviews but handy camping tips, personal anecdotes and equipment reviews. It shows you how beautiful our landscape really is in the UK. Haven't read a UK travel book this inspiring and exciting since Wild Swimming.

I have been looking for some time for a user friendly guide about camping by water. This book really fits the bill, with lots of useful detail on each campsite and its facilities plus all the directions, opening times of each and any restrictions. Some great photos too which give you a good impression of what to expect. A must for keeping in the camper van.

Pretty shocking that the "best in Cornwall" site is for caravans only with no showers or toilets. In fact, many of the sites are for campervans and caravans, not tents.

So, why not have a picture of a capmervan on the front instead of a tent and rename the book "Caravanning by the waterside"?

This easy-to-read guide highlights not only the best places to camp, but incorporates handy hints and tips which everyone can benefit from, including keeping safe out there and what clothes are good to take. It is excellent for beginners (like myself), and those who camp often. The photographs, that accompany the descriptions, are captured beautifully and so picturesque--most of us have probably forgotten that we own gorgeous beaches and landmarks around the UK and Ireland!

It combines luxury camping ideas with those who wish to save on cash, but Neale assures us that prices will fluctuate year on year.

Top 10: this little guide is handy for giving you the top ten sites for specific activities, including getting out on the water, or even the best places to fish.

It also divides Britain and Ireland by area and helps you to approach visiting camp sites and caravan parks using this method.

I'd pass it round to family members and friends if I could stop fantasising about my next camping trip...A little winner of a book!

I bought this book thinking it would include similar campsites to Cool Camping, Tiny Campsites, etc. However the sites it lists are not what I was expecting. I've been to quite a few of these sites and many of them are large, commercial sites which aren't exactly waterside idylls. Unlike those other books, this book doesn't tell you the pros and cons of each site so it's difficult to compare them without some extra research.

The idea of a book of waterside campsites is a lovely one but I was expecting to find some hidden gems in here, or at least for there to be some honest appraisal of what the sites are like, apart from being by water. As it is I'm afraid I haven't found any sites in here that I don't think I could have easily found via a quick trawl of ukcampsite.com.

Having said that, the book looks lovely and has inspired me to try some wild swimming next time I'm at one of my favourite secluded waterside sites (none of which are mentioned here).

If camping - or motorhoming - is what you do, then where you want to be is by the water. This book is excellently laid out, and with stunning photography, really entices you to go to these places. Contains many useful tips about the sites and camping in general. Keep it in the motorhome - or on your coffee table.

I brought this book as I enjoy the occasional multi day canoe trip so finding camp sites is of interest to me.

However, several "camp sites" that interested me in this book are actually caravan sites as they do not allow tents. Now, my understanding of "camp sites" is that you camp on them, not put a caravan on them, when they become "caravan sites".

As I don't have room for a caravan in my canoe I found the book to not be as useful as I had first hoped.

However, it is easy to use and does have some "proper" camp sites of interest in it so it's worth three stars.
