Cycled this route today and cannot recommend it enough. Really quiet roads, beautiful scenary and some interesting tings to see. Some good information boards on the route which explain places of interest very well. I'm not new to the touring game but found the direction signs a little confusing at times so would recommend that you get a good OS map and plan the route from this website before setting off. Having said that any of the roads around the route are well worth cycling on so getting slightly lost will not spoil the day!!
