Suggest a 5-night loop from London

Jump to last reply

After spending three nights in London we are planning on doing a 6 day/ 5 night road trip around Wales and the Cotswolds. The amount of information out there is overwhelming, so I thought I'd see if anyone has any suggestions for an itinerary.
Only real two must-sees are:
Stonehenge
Royal Shakespeare Company (there are evening performances on the 1st, 2nd, and 5th night, or a matinee on the 3rd day).

Other than that, we'd like to just have a relaxing week. Maybe some walks, visiting nice small villages, old castles. We love eating well, so one or more of the more food-centric b&b's would be great. Seen some articles recently that recommended the Drawing Room, the Bell at Skenfrith, and others. Fishing and clay pigeon shooting seem to be popular in wales which sounds fun, though we would need a guide/lessons. We love the ocean so a detour along the Welsh coast would be nice. I think 2 hotels would be ideal, but we could do 3 if it makes more sense for the itinerary. We will be driving back to Heathrow the last day to fly home, though our flight is not until 5pm so we will have plenty of time to get back from wherever we are.
Thanks for your help!
