This unique book combines the joys of camping with the delights of walking with your dog. Here can be found information on
a variety of campsites, all of which welcome dogs, with some providing special facilities for your pet. All the campsites are
located very close to footpaths and walking trails. In addition to identifying the distinctive characteristics of the area there are
detailed instructions for two walks of varying lengths from each campsite. This provides 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 you love taking your dog, but do not know where to go, this book will help you find either the perfect location for a weekend jaunt, or the facilities you need to explore a region, or even to tour the UK.
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).
