Still in planning for a September-October trip (3 & 1/2 weeks) and, in planning for the leg that takes us from Bath to Conwy, I have reached a small conundrum. We will probably be picking up a car in Bath (we will be there 2-3 nights and plan to explore the area before heading on to Conwy). It looks like we have a free night between Bath and Conwy (don't want to make the entire drive in one day so that we can explore a bit more en route), but have no idea which route to take or where would be a good one night stop. (We will be in Conwy for two nights and then one night in Chester before dropping the car off - maybe Manchester airport? - and flying on to Islay via Edinburgh)
We like everything from history to art to architecture to food to adult beverages. Not really sure what we might find between Bath and Conwy.
Suggestions or ideas?
