Glasgow - London 9 days

Hi all. Firstly, thanks for reading my post! My first time on this great web site.

My husband and I (Australians) are traveling from Glasgow to Heathrow in May over 9 days, avoiding London itself! Would love to hear your comments, suggestions (including accommodation ideas) and criticisms of what we have planned. We've been to London before but never travelled the UK.

Day 1 Glasgow to Greenhead region via Alloway, Gretna Green, Carlisle and Thurwall Castle. Hopefully arrive in time to see some of Hadrain's wall.

Day 2 Tour the Lakes District then back for a second night in Greenhead region (probably a B&B)

Day 3 Travel to York via Newcastle, Durham and Whitby. Overnight in York region (but probably not York itself)

Day 4 Tour around York (Yorkshire Dales, etc) then second night in York region (B&B?)

Day 5 Drive to Lincoln area via Ely. Overnight near Lincoln

Day 6 Long drive day to Conwy via Chester. Maybe stay at Llanddudno?)

Day 7 Drive to Breccon Beacons via Cardigan, Llechwood slate mines (?) and Carnavon Castle. O/ngt Brecon Beacons

Day 8 Drive to Cardiff area via Big Pit (?) and Hay on Wye. O/ngt Cardiff area

Day 9 Drive to Heathrow via Bath (flight is not until 9.30 pm).

Many thanks for considering! Looking forward to your responses, even if they are brief and only on one section. Have we missed any highlights? :)
