I'm planning to tour southwest England in mid-September for 13 days.
I'll be flying into LHR and renting a car from there. Here's my plan so far:
Week 1: I'll be staying around Southampton very near a friend who will be showing me around Hampshire. I'll have a couple days on my own initially, so i was thinking of Stonehenge, Salisbury & Winchester. I hear the stone circle at Avesbury is very nice though, so maybe that's a good alternative to SH. After this, my friend in Southampton will take over my touring for about 3 days. After that I'll be heading west to Cornwall. I thought about a northerly route on which I would stop in Bath. I'd also like to see Oxford, but perhaps that's too much to squeeze in and too far north.
Week 2: After Bath, I would like to head toward Exmoor and from there follow the coastal route all the way around to to Weymouth, before heading back to LHR.
If I stick strictly to a coastal route, I would probably miss lots of beautiful places in the interior of Devon and Cornwall, so I would appreciate any suggestions for that part of the trip specifically and any comments/suggestions on the doability of the whole trip in general.
Thanks so much,
