Go Slow Britain is a terrific collection of around fifty of Britain's most exquisite B&Bs, hotels and inns all taken from our Special Places to Stay collection and all run by owners who embrace the Slow philosophy of life. Each of them values their community and strives to have a positive impact of the environment and to use local and organic food. It is a guide celebrating fascinating people, fine architecture, history, landscape and real food. Meet farmers, literary people, wine-makers and craftsmen – all with rich stories to tell. The Slow Food revolution is upon us and food plays a big part in this guide; we celebrate the homemade and the homegrown meals that are produced with care, skill and love. We include original and authentic recipes from all corners of Britain, too. The guide is bought to life with beautiful photography and fresh writing.
