Our first large-format book, Go Slow England, was a bestseller. This second edition, packed with the pleasures of slow food, slow travel and slow living, includes Wales and a foreword by wildlife presenter Kate Humble.
Go Slow England & Wales celebrates life in the slow lane with a hand-picked selection of special places to stay. There’s also advice on cultural, historic, gastronomic and unusual places to visit, and a small collection of regional recipes. Discover the pleasure of staying with owners who choose to support their community, are passionate about seasonality and home-grown produce, and care about their effect on the environment. Among them are artists, musicians, farmers, chefs, historians - people who take the time to enjoy life at its simplest best.
