My parents are visiting me in Oxford and I'm renting a car (with natsav) to show them around UK. They want to visit Stonehenge and I thought I'd do that first and then drive through the Cotswolds so they can get a taste of quintessential English villages and scenery. If someone could suggest a good scenic drive with some stops along the way for a bit of a stroll (they are fairly fit, especially if it's flat ground), maybe through some parklands or next to a stream? I'd like to avoid the tourist traps because I find places swarming full of tourists detract the whole experience.
I'm also curious if it's possible to see Stratford upon-Avon along the way or will time be too pressed? I'd rather have a pleasant, relaxing day. They need to unwind after having been in London!
Thanks in advance.
