Small town near London for an overnight stay - suggestions please

Jump to last reply

DD and I will be in the UK during the first week of November. We will arrive on Friday, and from Tuesday I have to be in London for work. I would love to spend the weekend in a quaint small town on a bus/train route within an hour or two from London. I am dreaming about somewhere with a nice little hotel, good walks, pretty views ... the English village of our dreams (please don't scoff). I realise that I have to share beautiful places with other tourists, but would so much like not to have too many people around (in November this is perhaps a given?) I have been to Oxford earlier this year, and loved it. I know that there is a plethora of choices, and thought I could narrow it down to the Cotswolds or perhaps the Lake District (although that may be too far for a short trip?) If we can catch a bus from Heathrow to where-ever we are going, it would be perfect. Any suggestions?
