These three friendly guidebooks certainly live up to their name and are a cut above others currently available on the market. Covering the rich environment, history and geography of Lands End, the Lizard and the Isles of Scilly they achieve their aim of being helpful companions for interested visitors and I suspect locals alike. I first came across the latter while holidaying in the Isles of Scilly and found it clearly written and presented with a mine of information to help plan and understand trips around this region. Only later did we acquire the other two volumes when walking the South West Coast Path. The maps are beautifully drawn and packed full of detail , a valuable addition OS Explorer editions. In short they meet the needs of most people attracted to this part of Cornwall and the author is to be congratulated on producing such comprehensive guides. I am very pleased to have them on my book shelves as a source of reference and future inspiration.
Excellent set of books with beautiful photos, historical details, suggested activities, maps, and much more. Indispensable for anyone planning a trip to the Scillies, or a wonderful way to refresh happy memories. Perfectly delightful - thank you!
Excellent and informative
Order in the afternoon, arrived next morning - perfect.
This is a far superior map to the OS one for the Scilly Isles. Shows every path and lane and all the various cafes, pubs, places of interest etc. OK, no contour lines, but all you need to know is its hilly!
Initially purchased the Lands End guide book and was so impressed, immediately purchased the Lizard and Falmouth & Roseland guide books. Excellent layout, history, information and walks. Had also purchased other guidebooks but these were far the best.
These Friendly Guides are just that, friendly helpful and local, like a good friend. So impressed with this guide and the in-depth inside track information that I’ve bought another for the Lizard Peninsula. Can thoroughly recommend.
This is an extremely useful and accurate guide to the area for locals and visitors alike.
Handy and useful for walks and getting around this part of Cornwall.
Easy map to follow and folds away perfectly into a pocket. Covered ours with clingfilm on wet days. Highly recommend map and Friendly Guides UK as a company. Excellent service and speedy delivery. Great value for money.
Great simple maps that were perfect to get around the Islands. Just a shame they do not do a waterproof version. Satisfied with the service from start to finish
Perfect for an overview of the Islands and good for planning my next holiday.
Great guide book, was very useful for a week on the Lizard Peninsula.
I'd thoroughly recommend this book, lots of lovely tips and information to help you explore the area. Lots of photos too that help put it all in context. Definitely worth the money.
Excellent. Really useful information. Clear maps. Bought this after buying the one about The Lizard which was also excellent. Hopefully more areas to follow!
