In its ninth year, the Brit Stops 2019 book includes over 970 hosts across the UK and Ireland. As well as country pubs and farm shops, there are also vineyards, cafés and breweries as well as many other interesting ‘one-off’ stopovers, such as an antiques centre, a deer park and even a few museums. Many stopovers are to be found off the beaten track, maybe by a canal or riverside, or by the beach or a lake, while others are located in picturesque villages or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Using Brit Stops offers you more freedom, from impromptu weekends away to stopovers en route to far-flung destinations, or even a meandering tour of a new region. The scheme also works alongside Wine GB and FARMA; enjoy fresh produce while at the farm, sip award-winning wines on the vineyard or enjoy a drop or two of locally brewed beer. There is no obligation to purchase products or services, but of course it’s always difficult to resist fresh produce!
The 2019 edition is fully updated, with over 150 new sites added. Plus, there are monthly photographic competitions to win next year’s book.
Features include Ordnance Survey maps showing host sites, with motorways and major A roads marked, post codes for sat-nav plus written directions, clear symbols showing what facilities (if any) are available.
The annual guide is valid from 1 March – 28 February. Visit the Brit Stops stand at Warners Shows or find out more at britstops.com
