Circular routes ~200 miles

I'm a novice tourer looking to do a weekend touring and would like to find a circular route somewhere, approx 140-200 miles in length which would be suitable to cover in 2 days with an overnight stop en route.

Based in East Anglia but happy to travel anywhere in England (other than the far South-West). Lots of lovely routes seem to be point to point not circular and I don't want to have to deal with the logistics of that!!

Not too strenuous on the hills would be ideal too - it's so flat round here i'm not well trained on big hills!!

Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Book a b&b and take a round about route to get there. 200 mile route barely needs planning. Just ride to cromer and back unless yiu live in cromer that is. -wheel building and other stuff.

    It's easy enough to sort out yourself. Choose the area and find the b and b. Then you can plot a route. Just avoid the bigger roads and use Google Street view to check.

    Here is a pretty route. I'll try and find V1 which goes right into Hastings and also through a gravel track through Badgebury Forest which is a bit different and not off road.
