Dropping through my letter box this week was the 2014 Britstops guide from Steve and Mandy. We heard it hit the floor from the metre high letterbox and thought someone had just delivered us a house brick. Length, width and weight do actually resemble house-brick while it’s 3/4 of an inch thick. This copy was sent to me free of charge to review.
Just like the France passion scheme that it emulates the Brit Stops scheme is simple: it lists hundreds of country pubs, farm shops, vineyards, breweries, craft / antiques centres, etc. offer an invitation to members of Brit Stops to stay overnight in your motorhome or campervan in a safe environment and for a maximum period of 24 hours – free of charge! All you pay is an annual £25 fee which gets you the guide and a small window sticker so you can prove to the Britstop hosts that you are a current member. Thereafter your stops are free. Of course the stop owners hope that you’ll spend some money with them but this is not compulsory.
The guide is well laid out and couldn’t be simpler to use. The country is split into ten sections, each with a map clearly showing where the stops are. With plenty of information about what to expect at each stop as well as excellent directions. Britsops is an excellent scheme and while the number of stops have increases greatly the price has remained the same. It costs just £25 and come recommended. Get it here http://www.britstops.com
DISCLOSURE: I’m never paid to provide a certain opinion. My reviews will always say if I have bought an item myself or been sent it to review. or maybe I’ve simply spotted it out there on the web and consider it worthy of Funsters attention. My reviews will always be 100% honest, regardless. JIM
