Take the Slow Road - England and Wales

Take the Slow Road - England and WalesThis is the second book in Martin Dorey’s stunning 'Take the Slow Road' campervan series

The ultimate guide to the very best scenic and fun routes for camper vans and motorhomes around the valleys, mountains and coastlines of wonderful England and Wales.

Details from the publisher

Stunning coastlines, picturesque valleys, rolling hills, magnificent forests, quaint villages, historic sights, extraordinary wildlife, friendly locals – England and Wales have it all. And if you want to maximise your enjoyment of what these glorious countries have to offer, why hurry? In Take the Slow Road: England and Wales, author and ‘campervan guru’ Martin Dorey deliberately dawdles through England and Wales – and so, with the help of this book, can you. Call it meandering, pootling or bimbling, it's all about drifting when and where the mood takes you, stopping only to re-fuel, pause for thought or take in that glorious, sky-filled view.

And how are you going to do it? In a campervan or a motorhome, of course!

Martin explores the best driving routes, and the coolest places to pitch up, as well as suggesting what to see and what to do – and why it’s special.

Hundreds of beautiful photos, stunning, useful maps and inimitable travel writing from the king of camper vans make this a book not just to relish but to cherish.

Take the slow road with Martin Dorey and discover a new way to experience beautiful Britain.

Our review

Having travelled quite a bit of the UK in campervans and motorhomes over the years we tend not to buy guide books, however this is so much more than a guide book.

It's well written, in Martin's chatty style, and includes details of 28 touring routes. Each one has a general description of the area covered by the route and its attractions, together with a notes about driving the route. All of this being enlivened with anecdotes from Martin of his experiences en route and some great photos. Each area described has a map showing the route, campsites to stay at, and suggestions for things to see along the route or nearby.

The introduction to the book has useful background for those who may be unfamiliar with England & Wales, and also handy tips for beginners to campervan or motorhome holidays.

In conclusion, this is a book that we can highly recommend to anyone looking for inspirational drives through England and Wales - slowly, of course!
