  1. Nicola James

    We used the book in our travels on the M40 to Wales. Coming off at Junction 15 to stop at Hatton Locks, which had a great walk along the tow path, with cafe and pub nearby On the way back we stopped at Junction 2 and we able to have a walk around scenic Burnham Beeches, which again had a cafe to get a coffee in an outdoor environment. An essential item for all our travels now.

    An absolutely EXCELLENT book.. learned about several good walks accessible to both dog and wheelchair really quite close (within 20 m radius) of home!

  3. Greer Dickens (verified owner)

    Great pocket size book with lovely walks to stop at……. I hate motorway stops so this is perfect

  4. Teresa Briscoe

    Bought for me as a Xmas gift. Took a sneak peak and it looks marvellous. Can’t wait to explore with this aid on my travels next year.

  5. Pam Clark (verified owner)

    A little gift for ME. Looks great can’t wait to start getting out and about again.
    Really good service from Pet Friendly as usual.

  6. Nick Santon (verified owner)

    Exactly what I was looking for as taking the dog around smelly motorway service areas is not great. Will keep this in the camper for when we go travelling and need to exercise and refresh ourselves.

  7. Ms Karen Kinger (verified owner)

    Nice compact and tidy book. Easy to sort out what motorway you need.
    Felt it was a little short on description of the actual walks, many of which are ‘there and back’, not circular.
    But very handy and will know more when we’re allowed to test them out!

  8. Peter Mark Yearsley (verified owner)

    Looks a very helpful and informative travel companion for longer journeys. However, postcodes would be more helpful than coordinates for entry into sat nav for finding these places as sat nav is easiest form of navigation for lone travellers (unfortunately my dog can’t read the directions from the book for me)

  9. David Gee (verified owner)

    Just the ticket. Nice compact size and comprehensive selection of walks.
