Help with organizing itinerary and lodging in West/SW England/Wales

I need help with the first five-days of a 3 1/2 weeks trip in England and Wales (June into July). We'll be traveling these 5 days before settling into a cottage we've rented in Shropshire. I need help organizing the days and finding a place to base.

Here's the itinerary so far, which is the "wish-list" of myself, DH, and 19-yo DD.

Day 1 Monday Fly into Heathrow/pick up car
Windsor/Park/Changing of guard in town or at Castle/State apts
Oxford/tour of Christ Church
Stonehenge/Wiltshire museum/Avebury
Salisbury Cathedral/tower tour?
Glastonbury -hike Tor, see Well
Cardiff/St Fagan's museum/Llandaff Cardiff Ghost walk
Brief stop off in Rhondda Valley (visit relatives)
Where to stay - beautiful/historical things to see on way to Shropshire??

Day 1 - 6 is "mushy" because I'm not sure how much time to allow for these things? and where to base? We'd prefer not to move to new lodging each day if there is a base that makes sense--and for which days? We prefer cozy B and B's rather than upscale hotels. History and character win over amenities--rural or semi-rural location is fine. Budget approx 120 Pounds per night for lodging/breakfast--and much less would be appreciated!

Also, DD wants to see Windsor Castle which makes most sense on Day 1 but isn't open until Day 2 and the apartments not 'til Day 3. What could we see/do in Windsor when the castle is closed? would that be worth it? see the grounds and move on to Oxford on Day 1? Is there any other time on Day 3 or 4 that it would make sense to go back to Windsor? DD is flying out of Manchester on way home so we won't be coming back this way later.

Your help is very much appreciated in helping to know how much to do/see in one day, where to base and suggested lodging. Thank you!!
