    There's a cracking B and B in Ambleside called Brandtfell house. Syperb breakfast and great hosts.

    On on the doorstep of many great walks, pubs, restaurants. And a stones throw from Grasmere and Thirlmere/Helvellyn area.

    Swan Hotel Newby Bridge - sure to get you plenty of credit for future stalking weekends!
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Lyzzick Hall is a nice to place to stay and has an amazing restaurant, or further up Bassenthwaite is Armathwaite Hall, both within 3-4 minutes of Keswick.

    To avoid the tourist traps, come to the Western Lakes. A bit further to go, but well worth it. Stop in one of a couple of nice hotels in Ennerdale Bridge and visit two of the best lakes - Ennerdale and Wastwater (deepest lake and highest point in England).

    If you don't want to go quite so far, Keswick is an excellent Lakeland small market town and a good base for touring, walking or whatever takes your fancy. Take the time to call in to John Norris' shop at Penrith, another fine small market town. Excellent shops there too but not too many of them, so a compromise for both you and the better half. Call in at Pooley Bridge, not too far from Penrith, a nice Lakeland village on the shores of Ullswater where you can take a steamer ride on the lake, either one way and a walk back or the round trip.

    Ambleside, Bowness-on-Windermere and places nearby are absolutely lovely, but they are much more accessible to those living in the big cities of the north and so there's always loads of people and traffic on those country roads with people taking breaks such as you are planning. Especially at the weekends.

    Stop driving everyone crackers as per normal.
    He plainly said Lake District.
    Accommodation may be available at the Pooley Bridge hotel or the Sharrow Bay hotel on the Howtown road.
    If you went to either you could go up the left side of Lake Ullswater via Howtown into Martindale.
    The wiggly road from Howtown to Martindale itself is quite spectacular with wonderful views of the lake.
    This is the home of hundreds of Red Deer which can be viewed from your vehicle or seen by a short walk.
