I am having problems choosing anything because I don't have as myuch time to plan as I wished. I have a week in the cotswolds with family---a week prior to that or a week and half we were going to spend 4 days in scotland and 3 in lake distrtict. I wonder if we are trying to do too much. We love haunted castles, walking, hiking (easy not the climbing types), woods, biking, horseback riding and jumping, history, and antiques. I am getting indigestion from reading so much and also I do not have a good feel for distances and how much time it takes or doesnt take to get from one spot to the other. My hausband says driving from the lake district to the cotswolds in one day is a long drive and to dump the rental car there and take a train to the cotswolds and pick up another car there. Or I suppose if we chose scotland we could dump the car and train down from there as well. I welcome any suggestions from the locals who have given me so many good ideas for whcih I am grateful----I do appreciate it and it will be more helpful than all the guidebooks in the world. I like Peter Irvine's Cotland the Best but it doesnt have much on B&B and we prefer that to a hotel. Thanks!
