Where to stay near Heathrow

The day before my flight back to US, I will be driving from Cornwall early Friday AM (Sept 20)and want to spend no more than 5-6 hours on the road, but also want to be close enough to Heathrow (not more than an hour and 1/2, tops, 2, driving time) so as not to incur too much driving the next day, before my flight--I'd like to be at the airport, after dropping off my car (Hertz) at 2 for a 5PM flight. Is there a more scenic route than not for the drive from Cornwall? What area do you recommend I arrive for a night's stay? And can anyone recommend a B&B, in that area?

If you thought you could drive all the way there, Windsor is a nice place to stay when departing out of Heathrow. 20 minutes away by car or taxi. And there is the Castle and Eton across the pedestrian bridge over the river Thames. Lovely restaurants, etc.

Thank you for your suggestion. I've opted for a more peacful setting before having to deal with the hustle and bustle of Heathrow, and then NYC. But it will be unfortunate to have missed Windsor.
