I'm trying to plan a quick 'getaway' for the end of the month, just me, the old man and DS (10).

It needs to be within 3 hour drive of central London and I love the water (sea, river, puddle...dont really care), but somewhere peaceful where we can eat well, relax and do a bit of hiking (pref old burial sites, or standing stones for me).

Has anyone any good ideas? I'm my minds eye, it's a quaint b+b in the middle of nowhere...

Cotswolds? Beautiful walks, and if you go Windrush valley direction some river walks too. Lots of history round that neck of the woods and options for outdoorsy things or mooching in villages/coffee shops.

Is that where the Jurassic coast is?

Yup - lots of fossiling, posh pub food, beaches and hills
