I will keep on using this book, but I wish there was British Rough Guides for natives.
There are some suggestions along the lines of "If you want to avoid the crowds then try...", but I found there to be a lack of ideas for each place. The suggestions that are present are listed in an uninteresting fashion, leaving me unsure how best I should spend my time in each place (and whether to visit it at all). At best, the level of subjective comment on each significant town is inconsistent.
There is a lot of good detail on bus numbers, eating places and other 'nitty-gritty' stuff. One car park suggestion was particularly helpful. Overall, though, this information is obtainable fairly easily elsewhere and I would have preferred a far more personal 'on the ground' insight into each place, which is harder to source unless you know someone else who's been there.
It's hard to see who this book is aimed at. If you already have a good idea where you want to stay and where you might visit, I don't think you'd find that this book adds much to your experience: I didn't. If you have no idea where to go or where to stay, I don't think this book will be the best either, for the reasons above. If you need travel details, then you have to decide whether it's worth £11.99 to have a less-than-comprehensive and poorly laid out list for selected places in the whole of Devon and Cornwall.
