Exploring the English countryside

Going on our first international vacation in September! We're looking for suggestions of a good town or village to explore that is within two or three hours of London by rail or bus.

My wife and I will be traveling to Europe in early September. We've booked a hotel in London for a full week, but are interested in taking one or two day trips outside of the city during that time. We both love the beauty of the English countryside, but are limited to public transportation in our ability to explore it.
Can anyone suggest a good town or village we can explore that is within two or three hours of London by rail/bus? It doesn't have to have museums or castles or a big tourist draw, just nice scenery (my wife loves sheep and cottages). We will not be renting a car, so access to public transportation and walkability are a must.
