Used to love doing the Devon Ranger, and tagging it on to the end of an Advance Ticket(s)

Alternatively, Cornwall is quite good if you want to visit the Wycliffe filming locations as an alternative to Trainspotting.

Not interested in the Cotswold Discoverer?

'Best' is very subjective without further definition. Price? Value? Mileage? Scenery? Rolling stock variety? Places to visit? etc.
