The Wild Guide to the South West of England – book review

Wild guide book

We love the West Country and take regular trips to Devon and Cornwall to enjoy the beaches and the beautiful countryside. It’s such a lovely part of the UK and the perfect place to get out amongst nature. And that’s exactly what ‘The Wild Guide’ is designed to help you with.


These two counties are well-known for their attractions but finding new spots away from the crowds, or a hidden gem can be harder to track down.

This book has an astonishing number of ‘wild’ places up its sleeves, and you will see the West Country in a whole new light as a result.


The Wild Guide features 500 wild places to explore and another 300 wild places which are ideal locations for eating and camping. It’s lovely to find a book which has collected together so many inspiring places for little (and big!) ones to enjoy, including secret coves, lost ruins and ancient woodlands in Devon, Cornwall, as well as Somerset and Dorset.

Split into sections by location you can easily look up nature’s hideaways and lesser-known corners of these counties. If your family is one which adores the great outdoors you will find lots to love here.


As well as wild attractions to visit there are sections on great places to eat, including the best spots for seasonal and artisan food.

Written with families in mind, the Wild Guide also features 28 detailed maps and inspiring photos. We love this book for its wild meadows, standing stones and brilliant new take on these well visited counties. We’ll be out to find some on an adventure soon!
