I found some of these amazing maps whilst on holiday in Cornwall but couldn’t complete the set, found the website which was easy to navigate and ordered the extra ones on line, delivered free of charge,, excellent service from this company and would certainly use them again, thank you
The Friendly Guides set the gold standard for guides to Cornwall and they are an outstandingly efficient publisher.
Hi, I would like to compliment your company for an excellent delivery service. The guide book and maps arrived just two days after I placed the order. I’m extremely pleased with the book and maps, very detailed and informative, and they are just what I’ve been looking for. I look forward to trying the suggested walks and boat trips when I visit the Islands in May.
Can’t wait to use this on my next trip to Cornwall and in the meantime it’s lovely to dip into and plan new adventures. Lovely photos to enjoy too . Well laid out with excellent information . I have past and present versions of all these guides .
Friendly Guides are the absolute best maps for any visitor to the Isles of Scilly
All aspects of information seems to have been included: geology; flora&fauna; climate, history; parking; &things to do according to age group.The maps are very clear&with writing of a decent size.I highly recommend it.
Greatly enhanced our holiday
Possibly the best series currently in print.The maps have legible writing,no microscope is necessary,& are easy to follow.All of the books in this series contain an absolute wealth of information&are a pleasure to read,&I hope that they will soon produce one for North Cornwall.I can't recommend it highly enough!
This was the perfect guidebook with large-scale maps with every detail marked on and full description of all the islands.
Really helpful maps and information.
This is a great little collection of guides in a perfect format to carry with you. Full of clear information, maps and suggestions to get the most out of a visit to these Isles. The discount for buying the set is a bonus.
Excellent efficient service
This is such a helpful guide book to a very beautiful area, particularly because it is not so accessible. Parking tips much appreciated and excellent advice regarding the recommended walks. I think one of the best in the Friendly Guide series!
I emailed to ask about the date of the new edition for the Isles of Scilly, the response the the email was quick and I was told the date, this was later than my holiday date and I was advise to have a look at purchasing Scilly Island by Island collection.
I purchased the collection which arrived within in two days.
Everything about this company was excellent and will definitely look at there website again when looking to purchase a guide.
Delivered the next day. They look great and will be used on our forthcoming visit. We were recommended to get these maps by a neighbour who uses them on their trips.
