I am having trouble planning where to stop on route from Cotswolds to Edinburgh. We will have a car and only 2 nights to stop along the way. I was thinking Peak district one night and Lakes district the other. Or Yorkshire one night, Lakes the second. As it is nicer to stay 2 nights in one location rather than moving my other thought was to stay the two nights in Cumbria.
I don't worry to be rushing around trying to see everything so am happy to just take in what is local to the area. No "must see" places just happy to enjoy beautiful countryside and pretty villages. Please offer any suggestions on where to stop, small villages preferred.
