Bath, Oxford and Cotswolds, how to get to and between them?

Jump to last reply

We'll be spending a couple of days in London at the very end of April/beginning of May and want to take about 5-7 days after that to visit Bath and Oxford along with a bit of the Cotswolds. Since it's the beginning of a several month trip we will be leaving luggage in London and taking only a carry-on size bag on this excursion. We're interested in history, antique shops, charm, good food, nice hotels. Not particularly walkers or bicyclists.

We'd like to train or bus to either Bath or Oxford from London itself (not LHR) and return from the other city to London. It's the in-between part that's got me stumped. If we spend 2 nights in each city, what would be a reasonable place to pick up a rental car and spend another 2 nights? Should we think of train or bus to a Cotswold town/village and rent there? And would a train or bus be better to/from Bath and/ or Oxford and London?

Thanks for what I'm sure will be helpful advice.
