We are in the beginning stages of planning a 3 week trip to the UK in July/August of next year. Just starting to really look at the places we want to see and it seems like we get a good circle leaving London for Canterbury - going along the coast to Cornwall and then up to Bath and back across by Highclere and Windsor.
I'm trying not to rush too much (which is why we are bypassing the swing to Scotland for a week).
Is a car our best bet on this? How do you plan your hotel stays? I don't want to always be backtracking but don't want to wear ourselves out with constant motion either. Any advice on this is welcome - I haven't had a vacation longer than 7 days ever so planning this is feeling like completely new territory.
