We have only, say, 3 days to explore what I call the centre of England - i.e. in a square from Leeds to Bury-St-Edmunds to Oxford to Newtown (near the A489 motorway). This will be from 17 October.
We are doing York after this, and also going further north.
I realise that there are countless picturesque towns and villages throughout the UK.
Could you suggest a road trip where we might see/find a lot of the beautiful stone fences, country lanes, picturesque towns and villages, green farming landscapes, quaint/rustic but popular pubs? We want to see that which is VERY English!
Also, are there any country fairs/markets/festivals still happening, though I realise that a lot of them happen in the warmer months?
