My husband and myself are going to rent a car for 9 days in October from Southhampton airport and hope to spend 7 days or so touring Cornwall and finishing with 2 days in the Cotswolds before flying out again. We are from NZ and have only ever been to London before but we are seasoned travelers and drivers having lived in other countries for long periods at different times. What will the weather be like at this time? Can anyone offer a suggested route for our driving. We love coastal scenery, small villages, are avid walkers and would like to do a day walk in a mining/railway historical area and we are big foodies. And any suggestions for places to stay either in the cute or great view categories???
