Self drive Britain in Winter

Jump to last reply

I would like some feed back about a proposed holiday. My wife and I and our 4 year old boy have an opportunity to take 5 weeks leave from 25/12/12 to 28/1/13.My wife has not been to Britain before and we thought it could be too bleak, cold and some places too hazardous or silly to go to at that time of year. We are thinking of arriving London for xmas for 4 to 5 days, than head off to the s/w to Cornwall vua Salisbury and stonehenge; stay a week perhaps in Cornwall and then head north to Cotswolds, Bath area, possibly see south Wales and then head up to Scotland and attampt to get as far as Inverness, staying 2 to 3 days in a few places. We thought then to travel down the east through York then Cambridge then depart from London. We liek to mix and match accomodation styles and we enjoy some histroy, architecture, natural places and landscapes, cafes and a bit of comfort. Are we completely nuts or is this sort of trip still enjoyable during Winter?

Any suggestions, critique and ideas would be most helpful as we want to book flights early.

Cheers
Neil and Rachel
