WITH the help of the 2009/10 edition of the Vegetarian Guide to the Lake District meat and dairy avoiders can enjoy all the delights the Lake District has to offer.

The handy A5 guide " which has been helping to promote vegetarian, vegan and veggie-friendly places in the region for 22 years " features a fabulous selection of places to stay, eat and shop, enabling readers to easily find meat and dairy free options in the region.

The Vegetarian Guide to the Lake District is packed full of useful information including full contact details for businesses, opening times and whether soya milk, fairly traded/organic products and vegetarian/vegan alcohol are available. It also includes where dogs are welcome and whether establishments have disabled facilities.

'the Lake District is a fantastic place to unwind but " like many places whilst on holiday " it can be difficult tracking down veggie, meat and dairy free options. The Vegetarian Guide to the Lake District is therefore a great little resource for visitors, helping to make their stay not just a stress-free but more enjoyable one.' says Justin Kerswell, editor of the guide.

Copies of the Vegetarian Guide to the Lake District are available from local tourist information centres, booksellers and businesses in the region or directly from Viva! at a cost of just "1 plus p&p. Call 0117 944 1000 or visit www.viva.org.uk/shop to order.
