Car hire with Hertz 2018 – Highlights of South West England

This itinerary gives you a real flavour of the region, with six counties and no less than four UNESCO World Heritage sites, historic cities, breath-taking countryside, picture postcard villages, and stunning seascapes all on your route. Exploring England is easy. In the countryside, the roads are excellent, well signposted and largely toll free. Distances between towns are short and driving is on the left hand side of the road, same as in New Zealand.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a minimum 1.4 litre for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.

Day 1: London – Shaftesbury – Dorchester (184km)
Stop at Stonehenge to marvel at the standing stones and the engineering skills of our ancestors. Drive 30 minutes through rolling countryside and you’re in the town of Shaftesbury, full of historic buildings and great literary connections. Continue south through Dorset villages to the Jurassic Coast.
Day 2: Dorchester – Exeter – Dartmoor – Plymouth (156km)
Drive into Devon to the cathedral city of Exeter to see the impressive 12th century cathedral. Head inland to the Dartmoor National Park; its wild landscape is believed to be the inspiration behind Conan Doyle’s epic Sherlock Homes story, ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’. Pass by granite outcrops known as Tors as you journey to the Maritime City of Plymouth.
Day 3: Plymouth – Polperro – St Michael’s Mount – St Ives (123km)
In Polperro stroll the narrow streets before heading further into Cornwall to the iconic St Michael’s Mount, a monastery that dates back to the 8th century. Drive through Penzance stopping at Land’s End and Botallack before reaching the beaches of St Ives.
Day 4: St Ives – Padstow – Port Isaac – Bath (340km)
Back up the coast past Newquay to Padstow, a pretty harbour made famous by celebrity chef, Rick Stein. Wander the harbourside and winding streets before a short trip to the tiny port village of Port Isaac, then it’s a 3 hour drive to Bath.
Day 5: Bath – The Cotswolds (150km)
Head through the Gloucestershire towns of Tetbury and Cirencester and into the Cotswolds. There are so many lovely towns and villages, each bursting with old-world charm.
