DH and I couldn't decide on WHICH area to explore: Cotswolds or Kent, so we decided to do both! Anyway, we enjoy road trips, and driving around.
Based on your useful suggestions, I was able to book 2 B&Bs: Sissinghurst Castle Farmhouse (in Sissinghurst) for the Kent leg and the Boxtree Cottage near Burford for the Cotswolds.
We'll be coming from London and, again following the advice of a Fodorite, would like to train from London towards Kent area, and pick up our car rental somewhere around there. Then drive around Kent, stay a few days, then drive to Cotswolds, stay a few days. Then drive towards London, drop-off our car near London, then train back. Basically avoid driving IN London, and maximizing the use of the car.
1. Can you suggest pick-up and drop-off points? Because of our indecision, we'll have to pick-up and drop-off in 2 different places
2. Any suggestions on which car rental company?
3. Any suggested routes? Most scenic? We're not really in a rush, and the journey is part of the fun!
Thanks everyone again!
