It’s always a pleasure to visit places that inspire and nourish us. Places that are warm and cosy or where we can surround ourselves with beautiful nature. Where we can meet our friends or enjoy some quiet time. Where we get some exercise or just hang out.
Sometimes that means getting a lovely, hot cup of tea or coffee with a delicious piece of cake on the side. Other times it means heading out on a trail with a picnic in our backpack. It could be spending a weekend with friends or family in the countryside in that picturesque little cottage. Or maybe your favourite spot is the local bookstore where you can browse around leisurely and forget the time.
To start The Slow Living Guide’s places directory, you can find a selection of really lovely countryside tea rooms and coffee shops in the map below. Hopefully we will be able to add other cosy and inspirational places like small independent bookstores, cottages and/or trail suggestions soon.
