We will be in London for a week with a tour connected with Olympic activities for the first week of August 2012. My husband and I are staying on the next week and planning on renting a car and flying home from Edinburg. There is so much to see and do I need some advise! Tentative plans to spend 2 days in Cotswolds then 2 days in Yorkshire then up to Scotland. We like history and nature so definitely want to see some castles and take some of the wonderful walks described. After being in the city with a large group we will be anxious to get off the beaten path. We want to stay in B&B's and prefer small, out of the way restaurants and activities. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
