a few days away from London, to places less visited


a few days AWAY from London. My car will await you, probably in Windsor, you can meet me there or I can come into London to bring you (and your luggage) to our starting point.
The itinerary will include whatever you want, but I will try and draw you away from the main tourists destinations. We will visit Avebury instead of (or maybe as well as ) stonehenge, Wells instead of Bath?
You can choose a theme, or I can suggest one. Thomas Hardy, National trust, Landscape photography, family history, Poldark. . . the options are endless.
Travelling with me you have the option of staying away from the "Madding crowd".

Itinerary

This is a completely customisable tour, so the suggested plan here is just an example
Day 1. from Windsor - Winchester - The new Forest - Salisbury (overnight)
Day 2 Hardys Dorset - corfe castle, Hards cottage, . clouds Hill (home of TE Lawrence. . of Arabia) , Lulworth cove and durdle door, max gate, overnight weymouth or Lyme regis
day 3 - Exeter - Dartmoor - Tintagel - Boscastle (overnight)
day 4, Exmoor - Dunster - Glatonbury - Wells - Bruton (overnight)
days 5 stourhead, Avebury, Stonehenge - return to London

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: My car will be in Windsor (or somewhere else outside of London, by arrangement) . If you need me to come and meet you in London, and guide you to it, that is how we wil start.

End location: back to London or any other location as arranged.

Duration: 5 days

This tour is a monday - friday tour but can be customised to other start days/durations by arrangement

Transportation

Renault Grand scenic. This is suitable for 4 adults, as long as they are not a basketball team. I have a roof box and large luggage space, for up to 4 medium sized suitcases (if you are 1, 2 or 3 passengers, travelling NOT light is no iussue)

What’s Included

Other: Transport and guiding through. Full customising of the tour, help with planning your accommodation. I will be close by wherever you stay overnight, so you are not restricted to "accessible" locations. The cost of MY accommodation is covered, unless you need me to stay in the same place as you, which is always possible by arrangement.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

800 GBP - this amount would cover simple accommodation (per couple), meals and entrance fees. This could be reduced if using basic accommodation, and increase for top quality..

What’s Extra

Other: Your accommodation. All meals and entrance charges, (But I will help you to get the best deals)
