We are planning to visit England beginning April this year. We will fly to London first but don't want to stay there for long. We have been in London several times, so what we want this time is rent a car and drive to England's countryside.

Considering that we will have about 5-6 days, I would appreciate to hear about your recommendations for a travel plan..

I can suggest the North, York and Northumberland.
York and then up to Durham and Darlington maybe? Around the York moors.

With just 5-6 days, I'd personally stay within a few hours drive from London. Maybe head west for a couple of hours to Bath? A beautiful place in itself, and maybe a good base to explore from - unless you prefer to just take your chances and see where you end up each evening. Hope for good weather but take a brolly. Should be ok though.

Nearly forgot about Kent - also known as the 'Garden of England'. Good luck!

Go to Ross-on-Wye! Its in the South Herefordshire countryside. I have some family members that live out there in a rectory and its one of my favorite places to go when I fly to England to visit family. It so beautiful with tons of greenery and its just relaxing and peaceful. I went horseback riding out there quite a few years ago and they've got a cathedral and a cute little town to go walk through :)

If heading for Bath take a trip to the South Coast or as it's known the "Jurassic Coast" & Stonehenge first. All 3 places are world heritage sites
