Stride out with your dog from a campsite. Follow nearby footpaths and byways to explore the surrounding countryside. This book will guide you on 45 different walks that allow you and your dog to enjoy the diversity of the British landscape, and return to the campsite invigorated and exhilarated.
Uniquely combining the joys of camping with the delights of walking with your dog, within the pages of this book can be found a variety of campsites, all of which welcome dogs, with some providing special facilities for your canine companion.
All of the campsites are located very close to footpaths and walking trails, and, in addition to identifying the distinctive characteristics of the area, there are detailed instructions for two walks of varying lengths from each campsite, providing the opportunity to explore the area in the immediate vicinity of the campsite, and appreciate the diverse environments to be found in Britain.
So, if you like camping and love taking along your dog, but aren't sure where to go, this book will help you find the perfect location for a weekend jaunt; the facilities you need to explore a region - or even to tour the UK!

About the author
When Anna retired after 30 years of teaching, and with her children now grown, she was able to pursue various diverse interests. She raised the profile of netball, securing a weekly column reporting on league matches, and so honing her writing and photographic skills.
Her dog Ruby was a significant influence, and together they travelled around the UK and Europe in her motorhome. She quickly discovered little information was available about camping with dogs. She began writing articles accompanied by photographs to submit to magazines, and several were published.
Upon Ruby's demise Anna wrote her book "My Friend Ruby" chronicling their time together. With
Amber, Ruby's daughter, and then Pearl, Ruby's great granddaughter, Anna continued travelling in her motorhome. In 2016, a series of her articles, entitled "Wonderful Walks," about walks from campsites were published in Motorhome Monthly Magazine (MMM).
