The best road trip in the South West

With the warm Summer weather taking over Great Britain, the time has come to explore the beauty a little closer to home! If you’re looking for a staycation this summer, and don’t own a car, why not rent one and explore the beautiful countryside in the South of England? 

Take a look at our pick of the best road trips you can do around our Stevenage VMS Vehicle Hire branch, introducing you to breathtaking views and must-see heritage sites. From crossing the Jurassic Coast world heritage site in East Devon, to bathing in original Roman sites in (you guessed it!) Bath, the places to discover and visit are endless.

1. Dorset to Cornwall - 150 miles
From Weymouth beach to Falmouth, these views are not to be missed! Expect golden sandy beaches, dramatic moorlands and lots of history. If you are a keen surfer, a family 4x4 fitted with a roof-rack for your surfboards would be ideal for this type of road trip.

2. The Mendips, Cheddar Gorge & Somerset Levels - 56 miles
It is rare that you find the combination of historic cities, great beaches and beautiful landscapes all in one county! Expect twisting turns and the odd farm vehicle as you weave your way through this spectacular route offering landscapes to remember, that are the setting of many a classic novel!

3. Bath to the Forest of Dean, Somerset and Gloucestershire - 45 miles
The picturesque city of Bath is only an hour and a half drive from London, making it the perfect weekend city break. After visiting the Roman baths, drive to the Forest of Dean, an area of outstanding natural beauty, perfect for adventure seekers all year round.

Everyone loves the thrill of the open road - especially if it involves a scenic drive through the beautiful British countryside. Take advantage of weekly vehicles rentals from only £26/day including insurance, mileage and VAT. Contact or ring us today and honour your passion for the open road.
