Haven’t picked up your copy of our February issue yet? Don’t worry, there’s still time!

We’ve been soaking up the views in Derbyshire’s Peak District, where Claudia discovered rare gems as she found out about the area’s history and how the spectacular landscape was carved into the limestone, creating wonders like Winnats Pass. 

You can also read all about my trip to Atherstone, weaving across the Warwickshire and Leicestershire borders to find out about the huge historic importance of the region.

In sunnier climes, Phil and Linda Raynor share tales of their first trip to Italy, where they stopped off in Lake Garda on their way back to the UK from Croatia.

Still deciding whether or not to upgrade your outfit this year? We’ve got a round-up of dealer specials caravans for the 2019 season that might help, plus a closer look at the Fairway Platinum 635, a Swift Challenger-based van that offers good value. We’ve also updated the buyer’s guide so that you can see all of 2019’s caravans listed in one place. 

You could also kick-start your new year by hopping on a bike – we’ve got a guide to road-friendly ebikes that might appeal to anyone wanting to explore on two wheels rather than four, with a little boost. Those thinking about how best to capture the magic of this year’s touring season might like our guide to landscape photography, too. 

Looking for a new tug? We’ve tested a couple that you might be interested in; the VW Touareg proved itself a good tow car for anyone happy with 5 seats, and we took a look into the Ssangyong Musso’s towing credentials – can a pick-up truck cut it when it comes to towing? 

We also wanted to know what you think of the new Hyundai Santa Fe. A handful of readers tested it with a Swift Fairway Platinum Edition at Broad Lane Leisure; read the latest issue to find out how they got on. 

Finally, this month’s expert advice includes everything you need to know about leisure batteries and fitting external TV sockets.

All-in-all, it’s an issue that you don’t want to miss out on. You can make it even easier to keep up-to-date with us by subscribing to have the magazine delivered to your door every month!
