    DescriptionAs ever, a hand-picked collection of Special Places to Stay - all with gorgeous gardens to discover. You can stay on the remote Isle of Gigha where the owner grows rare tropical orchids; take a course with a Chelsea Gold Medal winner in a secluded valley garden in Wales; discover a pretty plot planted to excite the wildlife - and the senses - in Somerset. Owners' gardening tips are listed too, and their ideas for visits to special woodlands, gardens and arboretums close by. This beautifully illustrated book contains over 90 B&Bs, self-catering cottages and hotels - an unusual and diverse spread of places to stay. All are visited by us, and chosen because we like them; the owners are valued for their hospitality as much as their green-fingers, and the gardens for their character and setting. There's good value too: a third have double rooms at GBP70 or under a night.

    Author Information
    Alastair has built a team of talented editors who are as committed as he is to the search for authenticity and personality in places to stay. They are also 'driving' the world's first carbon 'neutral' publishing company; the search for a reduced ecological footprint is a serious one. The company has won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category, an award from Business Commitment to the Environment and a Green Apple Award and moved to its own eco-offices in January 2006. Tom Hodgkinson is a writer and the editor of The Idler.
