Trip Planning Questions for England

Jump to last reply

Hi. Yestravel and I are in the planning stages of a trip to England this coming May. We’re envisioning a little over three weeks in the south. We enjoy pretty much everything except shopping: big city museums. small towns, hiking, scenic drives, dining - and history in small doses. We believe in slow travel and prefer to spend a minimum of the three nights in each location.

Right now we’re tentatively planning on the following:
• A week in London.
• Travel to Bath by rail, three nights in Bath.
• Travel by rental car to Devon/Cornwall/Dartmoor National Park/Land’s End. We’d like to spend five nights in one location and do day trips. Otherwise split six nights between two locations.
• Travel to Oxford by either rental car or rail. Three nights.
• Travel by rental car to the Cotswolds. Four nights.
• Return to London for a night or two.
Does this seem like a reasonable itinerary for three or so weeks? Does anyone have any preferred towns/lodgings they would recommend in the Devon/Cornwall/Lands End area, the Cotswolds or within the general area of southern England? Are we missing anything?

Thanks in advance for your help!
