Last minute trip--Oxford, Bath, Cotswolds--hard to find rooms!

We got a great deal on airfare, so we booked a last minute trip to England July 17-24. We'll be visiting Oxford and would also like to see Bath, Cotswolds, and/or Stonehenge--but many rooms and B&Bs are full! Any recommendations?! It will be my husband, 17 year old daughter, and me. Thanks!!

Height of Summer travel.

Research Air BnB and VRBO. Check Premier Inns.

I'm doing a similar thing very soon, though I have no interest in Stonehenge. I booked through these people;

They show rentals available for your dates, and there are other agencies. A lot depends on whether you will have a car rental or not.

What is your budget?

I wouldn't consider premiere inns (which I always see suggested) to represent cute or boutique, which you mentioned in your other post.

Do you plan to base yourself somewhere for the entire time and do day trips?

I saw lots come up.on Booking.com for that week in bath, but it all depends on your budget.

I'd prefer a single room for the 3 of us, and I'd be willing to go up to about $350 a night. We'll be visiting Oxford at the beginning of our stay, but I'd be willing to make one place our base if it's a good one. Otherwise I'm just thinking 1 night-Oxford, 2 nights-Cotswolds, 2 nights-Bath. I have a hotel in London for our last night--the Holiday Inn Express at Heathrow (because our flight out the next day leaves at 9AM).

I'm so appreciative of all your comments! Please keep them coming!
