First attempt at SW England itinerary - comments please?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travellers, I am hoping for some help to fine tune my itinerary in this beautiful part of the world.
We will have about four weeks to spend and are very keen to limit the amount of stops we make so have planned around mostly 4-7 day stays based on availability of the cottages/accommodations I like the look of!
Interests are walking, horse riding, photography, history and the ubiquitous quaint villages.

So far, I have something like this - nothing booked yet but wanting to soon because many of my favourites are disappearing already .....

Night 1 Arrive Gatwick at midday from Oz - maybe stay somewhere close by to recover
Nights 2 and 3 Dorset - somewhere near Poole area perhaps
Nights 4-7 Cottage near Exeter
Nights 8-14 cottage near St Mawes
Nights 15-21 cottage in Boscastle
Nights 22 and 23 ? Lynton/Lynmouth (nothing chosen yet, maybe B&B)
Nights 24 -26 Bath (nothing chosen)

I am a little constricted by when start and minimum days are for the chosen cottages but think this would give us time to explore each area quite well.
Would love to hear the experts thoughts please!
