What places do you recommend visiting outside of Liverpool? I'm looking for a relaxing experience in a smaller English village/town - similar to the Cotswolds or to St. Ives. Can you recommend anything around Liverpool that would be similar? Would need to be somewhere I could go to while using Liverpool as a base - meaning my hotel room would still be in Liverpool so I'd just be gone for the day at this recommended place. No more than 2 hours train or bus ride to get to this place I'd say... So, any ideas of where I should go?
