Driving- Dover to Cotswolds

We will be arriving at Dover and picking up a car at noon. First stop is Canterbury.

We have about two full days to go from Dover to the Cotswolds.

Any suggestions?

Drive through the southeast, along the coast and a few miles inland to see (not necessarily in this order):

Rye--a wonderful medieval town along the coast.
Leeds Castle--one of the most-visited castles in the area (http://www.leeds-castle.co.uk)
Sissinghurst Garden
Bodium Castle
Hever Castle (http://www.hevercastle.co.uk/)

Search for info on Sissinghurst and other sites by using the National Trust's website:

Two years ago my husband and I spent time in these areas. We stayed at a lovely B&B in Canterbury called the Thanington Hotel. I would recommend it. We drove from there to Dover, then to Brighton and really enjoyed seeing the Royal Pavilion. We stayed at the Brighton Thistle hotel with a view of the channel and was located by the lanes there, so it was very convenient for walking around the places we wanted to see. We then headed to the Cotswolds, and, because of time, used the motorway, which is considerably faster than driving on A or B roads. Of course we missed all the scenery along the water, which is the downside. But we wanted to spend a lot of time in the villages of the Cotswolds. So, suggestion wise, I would recommend a stop in Brighton and next time we will include Portsmouth too.
