Hello! My family will be in London for 5 days exactly one month from now (can't wait!!), and then will spend 5 days based in the Cotswolds. We will be leaving London on a Monday morning. Where do you suggest we pick up a rental car? We'd like to avoid driving in central London; however, we will have a one-year old and both a stroller and carseat with us, plus our bags, so I'm thinking it would be easier to limit Tube/train travel and transfers. I'd like to reserve a car before we leave home.
Also, although we'll be based in Stow for the 2nd half of our trip, we will be looking into day trips to places like Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, as well as checking out several Cotswold towns. Any suggested itineraries? We already have the London portion of our trip pretty much planned. Thanks for your help!
