Driving from Manchester Airport to Uley - Stop for Lunch?

Our flight arrives Manchester mid-morning next Saturday. Once we clear Customs/Immigration and pick up our rental car, we will be driving to Uley near Dursley, where we are staying for a week.

We'd welcome any suggestions for a stop along the way for lunch and some sightseeing. We have the British Heritage Passes.

Thanks!

If you do the journey direct you will be on motorways the whole way (M6 and M5) and the journey is about 2 and a half hours, so you will probably need to divert from this route if you wish to sightsee or do lunch.

Telford could be an option with the Ironbridge museum etc .Further on there's Malvern or Cheltenham which would provide a welcome break although you are almost at your destination by then.

Thank you very much! We will investigate your suggestions. Cheltenham seems a good possibility as we will have the bulk of the drive behind us then and a nice cold beer would be most welcome!

I'm guessing that you are staying at Stouts Hill. If so, the pub in the centre of the village - about 10 minutes walk away does great food. As has already been mentioned, it's only about 2 1/2 hours from Manchester airport so I would be inclined just to stop at the motorway services for a coffee on the way rather than trying to get to somewhere off-motorway.
