THE GIRL OUTDOORS
The Girl Outdoors is a beginner-friendly bible from Bloomsbury for all women looking for information and inspiration to get out in the great outdoors, get fit, get healthy and have fun. Guides to getting active outdoors, from mountain biking to climbing and surfing, plus chapters on everything from wild camping and cycle touring to trip-planning advice and tips on long-term backpacking and working abroad.

WILD ESCAPES
Journey with me and the National Trust to 40 unforgettable getaways in Britain’s wild corners, from floating cabins to miniature castles, tree pods to moored boats. Lose yourself in cosy reading nooks after a day hillwalking in the Peak District, go foraging in Yorkshire’s woodlands, or warm up by the campfire after taking a dip in coastal Cornish waters. Stay in the heart of Wales’ myths and legends, or pitch up at the birthplace of scouting. These rural retreats are ideal for slowing down and switching off, with tips on local walks and watering holes on the doorstep.
