We’re touring far and wide in the brand-new June 2017 edition of Practical Motorhomeon sale now! But let’s start with our Cornish cover feature.

Inspired by author Daphne du Maurier, our Bryony headed off to visit Cornwall in our long-term Auto-Sleeper Fairford to enjoy the stunning vistas of Bodmin Moor.

Then she was drawn to the coast, to explore Polperro and Looe, following in the footsteps of smugglers and stopping at every opportunity to drink in the dramatic sea views.

Well, so often we miss the gems right on our doorstep, but as he packs his Bürstner, Jos is determined to not make that mistake!

Taking in Jodrell Bank, Knutsford and historic Chester, he’s keen to return soon for more.

Plus, we have a new series for you. Called ‘County Counsel’, every month we’ll share our top tips for places to pitch and things to do in a particular county. And this month, it’s Sussex! Turn to page 38 for inspiration.
