Combining Cotswolds itinerary with Bath / Oxford?

Jump to last reply

First off, thanks muchly for the help [months ago] on my UK itinerary. Nearly the entirety of my trip is booked and I'm super excited!

One thing I haven’t settled is the best use of my planned time for Bath and Oxford. I'm booked to stay in Oxford from Wednesday thru Monday; from here, had imagined taking the train on a couple of successive days to Moreton (then, er, bus?) to do some Cotswold exploring. I’d like to walk some of the pathways between the towns a bit – what I believe flanner says is the proper way to ‘do’ the Cotswolds.

I'd figured on Bath from Monday to Saturday, renting a car for a couple of those days to visit Wilton House and Glastonbury/Stourhead.

But: Maybe I should rent a car for my last 2 days in Oxford (stash it at a periphery park and ride) and explore the Cotswolds with it, then hang onto it for a couple more days as I transition to Bath, where I'd deploy it for those day-trips. Or maybe use the car, add an overnight in a Cotswold town after Oxford, *then* head on to Bath?

And WHICH Cotswold towns to visit/walk between? I couldn’t find this specifically addressed when searching the forums. I saw mentioned in this thread...
http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/a-few-to-start-with-bath-cotswold-questions.cfm
...that annhig had provided someone with “a good list of things to see and do in the Cotswolds” but I was sadly not able to located this coveted item… unless it was PMed to the user - ?

Can someone help me make this work neatly together? :D
