In early September I intend to travel to the UK (from NZ) to spend 5/7 days exploring the West Country. I will arrive at Heathrow and plan to travel to and from the region by train and hire a car there (is there an age restriction...I am 78?) Which would be preferable, to stay in one place for the entire time and do day trips, or keep on the move.?
I would like comfortable, quiet accommodation (self catering woud be great) somewhere accessable by train and with a car hire depot.
Any comments on where to stay and what to see will be appreciated.
