My husband (who is 6 foot 6, which rules out bus travel!), two daughters (aged 9 and 11) and myself are considering visiting family in Edinburgh.
One option under consideration is flying into Hethrow and travelling up to visit them.
After good experiences in the US and in NZ, my husband would like to go via motor home. I am concerned that England is not set up for motorhomes, and wonder if hiring a car and staying at B&Bs would be better.
Budget is yet to be defined, but it is safe to say, we're not five star travellers, and prefer to experience the "real England" (another reason in my mind to not be confined to a motor home, but don't let my prejudices influence your reply please!!)
So to the questions:
1 - if the motor home is the way to go, which motorhome friendly route is the most scenic (we'd like to see "Doc Martin" type scenery)?
2 - Would we see more/get more value for money taking the car/B&B option?
3 - Is there another option (besides buses) we should consider (eg: train from X to Y, stay a day or two, then train from Y to Z).
