We will be travelling from Amsterdam to London after a Baltic cruise. It seems that flying will be better than train given the number of changes of train that would be involved.
Having visited London before, I was thinking of staying out of London and thought Windsor would be good as we can visit the castle etc as well as do a day trip into London easily. However I am open to suggestions.
We will have about 10 nightsto fill with about 4 nights to be spent at Windsor (or elsewhere) before heading to Wales via Oxford and Stratford on Avon.
I was thinking of staying somewhere around Abergavenny and using this as a base for about 3 nights to explore the region. Is this a good location to act as a base or should we stay in elsewhere perhaps in England.
We would then go to Cornwall and pick another base perhaps Mevagissey to tour the south of Cornwall.
We want to go to Ireland after the 10 nights and wondered if we should travel to Ireland via ferry rather than flying. If we used the ferry we could do the trip in reverse ending in Wales and then heading for Ireland.
Any suggestions would be welcomed. I realise the trip is in the early stages of planning but I always find that advise from experts is best in the early stages.
We would like to see the Brecon Beacons NP and the Wye Valley. Padstow for fish and chips, the Eden Project, Dartmoor, and River Cottage HQ are places we wanted to visit.
Any help or directions to trip routes would be welcomed.
