Have to agree with Morgana.
PS Perhaps SGRock is no longer interested in our thoughts on his query since he hasn't bothered to get back since November.
Actually we were there and stayed in Penrith, near Keswick, and absolutely loved it. The Lake district National Park is beautiful, and it was a very short drive from there to York, Leeds, and even Edinburgh. Beautiful drives complete with sheep being herded by locals and their border collies right across the road.
