Alastair Sawday Publishing

Alastair Sawday Publishing (ASP) is the company behind the well-known and highly respected 'Special Places to Stay' travel series. The books are a collection of travel guidebooks covering over 5,000 B&Bs, hotels and self-catering places in Britain, France, India, Italy, Ireland, Morocco, Croatia, Spain and Portugal, plus an expanding collection of Green Places to Stay.

It's a complex picture to paint in one system.
