London to Edinburgh Road Trip - Advice appreciated

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a 14 day trip to the UK this August with my husband. Would ideally like to start in London and end in Edinburgh, hitting a number of stops along the way. Below is the itinerary I'm currently playing with -- trying to factor in a mix of different areas (villages, cities, national parks), and fine skipping some of the more obvious spots like Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon. Definitely want to rent a car for the mid-section, but am trying to avoid having to drive in London and Edinburgh if possible.

I would appreciate any suggestions on whether this looks reasonable, particularly given driving time and such. Thank you so much!

Day 1 - arrive London
Day 2-4 - London
Day 5 - Train to Oxford (a must for my husband), rent a car, stay somewhere in the Cotswolds
Day 6 - Cotswolds
Day 7 - Drive to York
Day 8 - York
Day 9 - Drive to Lake District
Day 10 - Lake District
Day 11 - Drive to Edinburgh (suggestions on how to avoid driving in the city?)
Day 12-13 - Edinburgh
Day 14 - Fly out
