Slow Devon and Exmoor is a personal celebration of what makes the region special – an invitation to slow down and fully enjoy its beautiful places. Much of the information in this guide has not appeared in print before: it needs an insider to dig this deep into the soul of a county.
As much an entertaining armchair read as a practical guide, this book delves into facts and fiction with affection, humour and gusto. It seek out architectural curiosities, traditional fairs and festivals, scenic bus trips and coastal walks, and uncovers an entertaining cast of characters present and past.
