I need divine intervention, but reach for the next best thing: an Alastair Sawday guidebook. --The Guardian
Alastair Sawday's series of hotel guides aren't really guides at all - written from an entirely personal perspective, the narrative is so engaging that you can happily read them from cover to cover. --Easy Living
The best guide books ever. --BBC Good Food Magazine
About the Author
Alastair has built a team of talented editors who are as committed as he is to the search for authenticity and personality in places to stay. They are also driving the world's first carbon-neutral publishing company; the search for a reduced ecological footprint is a serious one. In 2005/2006, Alastair Sawday Publishing won an award from Business Commitment to the Environment, a Green Apple Award and The Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category.
Nicola Crosse also edits our 'Bed and Breakfast for Garden Lovers' and 'British Bed & Breakfast' guides. She brings to a demanding job an irrepressible affection for people and places and has a clear sense of what makes a place special.

I like this book. It oozes quality. As well as the collection of hugely tempting places to stay, it offers suggestions for local walks and days out with the kids, restaurants, pubs, and cream teas (of course). It helpfully lists places with good wheelchair and wifi access. It also notes those within 2 miles of the National Cycle Network - the ideal book for pocket, glovebox or saddlebag.
Sawday guides have always come up trumps for us whether in the UK or further afield. We've stayed in some wonderful places courtesy of the guides - some beautiful, some quirky, all special. This book is a cracker.
In my opinion it really has the best that this beautiful area of England can offer...in fact, having only got this book a few days ago, we have already used it and booked our next holiday.
If you are thinking of buying this book I would really recommend that you take advantage of one of the Amazon offers and buy a couple of these guides together...I guarantee that Alistair Sawday will have the perfect get away for you.
Overall: 5 Star - buy it and as soon as the postman puts it through the letterbox your book will be full of bookmarks of all the "I really must stay there" places.
