More than a bed for the night


I continue to be an unrepentant fan of print travel guides and of publishers who remain committed to keeping the format alive. So, I was pleased to stumble across the Sawday family of guide books. And they are really a family operation. Founded 19 years ago by Alastair Sawday, and now headed by son Toby, the publishers champion independent, locally run, quirky, creative and decidedly non-corporate places to visit, stay, eat and drink at.


With the company motto “More than a bed for the night“, Sawday has a terrific catalog of guide books with a focus on the UK, Ireland and France, but with books on Spain, Portugal, Italy, Morocco and India as well.


Sawday has a strong commitment to sustainable travel and also is starting to supplement their guides with smart phone apps.
