South western England itinerary, preliminary questions...

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travellers.

I am starting to research a trip to this part of England that we have never visited before and have some early questions that will help to shape the finer detail.

We (DH and I at this stage) will be attending a wedding in Ireland on July 11 and will have approximately 4 weeks prior to this (to cover anywhere we want really) but we were thinking SW England.

I would like some advice about peak holiday times and perhaps which areas to hit earlier and where might be a better choice later in the trip? Looking at some of the cottages I have seen in Cornwall for example, prices seem to head up in July - would this be true of all areas?

If so, is there a sensible 'order' to visit?

We would normally book self contained accommodation for a week (or part week if available) so any suggestions on how long to allocate which regions would be helpful.
Love coastal scenery, photography, walking (not hard core) quaint villages (doesn't everyone?), history and also having some downtime to relax.

We will have a car and our other decision is where to leave the car and fly to Dublin or should we make our way to the ferry at Fishguard for example? We have visited Ireland before but missed the SE so could explore Wicklow on our way up to Dublin?

Thanks for any advice.
