Forty-eight of the loveliest places to stay throughout England are celebrated in this lushly photographed guide to “slow” food, places, and lodgings. There are cottages and castles surrounded by wild and rambling gardens, with guest rooms tucked under the eaves, fitted with down comforters and luxurious bathrooms. You’ll dine on home-baked bread and ice cream churned by hand; local meat, fish, and produce; eggs laid by the chickens wandering across the lawn; fruit from the orchard across the way; and libations from local breweries or vineyards. For each area of England there are dozens of recommendations for sites and culinary destinations, as well as supplementary listings of additional pubs and inns. This also includes maps of the seven areas of England, useful websites, travel specifics, and information about “How to Be Slow.”
