My husband and I would like to stay in a small village for about three weeks. We would like to have some time to enjoy the culture and food, and we would use this location as a starting point to make day trips to some National Trust properties and other sights within a few hours' drive. It is helpful if there is a train station with access to London (maybe within an hour of London). Does anyone have a recommendation? We are hoping to rent an apartment or small cottage near the center of the village. Thank you!
