We've all been there. You venture out into the countryside for some peace and relaxation, only to find yourself battling with hordes of fellow campers to pitch a tent in a vast field with all the visual appeal of an out-of-town shopping centre. Happily, it no longer has to be like this. Guardian travel writer and fervent camper Dixe Wills springs heroically to the rescue with his personal selection of 75 of the very best tiny campsites in Britain - every one of them an acre or smaller, and each guaranteed to take you far from the madding crowd. This fully updated second edition of Tiny Campsites, which includes over 10 brand-new finds, unveils stunning little places to pitch in England, Wales and Scotland: on farms, cliff-tops and islands; in woods, quarries, orchards and back gardens; and beside pubs, lochs, rivers and museums. Each featured site comes with a quick reference guide and full run-down on facilities, local pubs, shops and attractions, as well as an Ordnance Survey map to guide you in. With extra features for cyclists, walkers and those using public transport, this book has all the essential info you need to discover and enjoy your own small slice of paradise. Tiny Campsites - because big isn't clever.

Dixe Wills spends more nights each year in a sleeping bag than nature intended. As an eco-travel journalist writing non- flying articles for the Guardian and other national publications, there's barely a corner of Britain that hasn't felt the press of his bicycle tyre, size 11 walking boot (non-leather), or biodegradable tent peg. He's also the author of several genre-bending travel books including The Z - Z of Great Britain, New World Order and Places to Hide.More About Dixe Wills
