We will be arriving by cruise ship at Dover May 3 and leaving for Istanbul on May 8. We would like to see Stonehenge, Stratford upon Avon, the Cotswolds (don't know which towns but I love the name Chipping Campden <g>) and maybe if there is time go into Wales to see a castle, but at this point I don't know if there even is a castle within driving range; I'd love to see Conwy but that may be too far.
We're thinking of staying in Bath as a sort of central location with a really nice B&B for our 52 anniversary. Is Bath our best place to stay? We're thinking about staying at Three Abbey Green in Bath. Bath seems like a great place by itself but I don't know that much about the area so there may be a better place to stay for 4 days in a central location. We've been to London many times but never been out into the countryside, or at least not since we drove to Edinburgh over 10 days in the 70s.
So my question is, I guess, what should we make as our central point? We will have a car and have budgeted for a wonderful vacation for our 52nd anniversary
