In this great British tour you’ll be able to swim with otters in Devon, go river-tubing in Yorkshire, night-swim under the stars in Oxfordshire and learn how to build a woodland sauna. In each area you can ready background chapters on famous wild-swimmers of the past and read stories of heroes, lovers and ordinary folk who have long enjoyed bathing under the willows. Perfect whether you are a wild swimmer, family paddler or just enjoy a waterside picnic.
NOTE: due to the large number of images and places the app is slow to load first time and may not work well (or crash) if many other apps are open in parallel. Please close other apps.
You will find preloaded maps, photos, directions and travel writing to inspire and inform. Most locations comes with stunning photography and some include detailed mapping (at 1:25,000 to help walkers and 1:250,000 to help with route-planning). There is contact information for nearby pubs, campsites and attractions. If you need inspiration you can browse the app by slideshow, list, photo gallery and on an interactive map. Ask the app to find places close to you, or search using postcode, address, star rating, walk-in time, keywords or other features. You can share places on email and Facebook and save favourites too.
I have the book but thought this would be more convenient and as the book is so good thought the app would be worth the price. However, they're are none of the great photos included in the book to show you what you could be looking for, just a space for you to upload your own. The information on each location is a bit clunky and just generally a poor relation to what is a great book!
Already have the book but purchased app thinking it would be convenient to you information when travelling. The app is slow and crashes when you try and zoom in on the overview map. stick with the book. It has more locations in. Disappointing considering the not inexpensive cost of the app!
