I'm a 45 year old man who is thinking of going to the Lake District by myself for 5 days. I've been living in Spain for 1.5 years, and this will be my last trip before I go back to the U.S. , and I want a nice, quiet peaceful vacation.
I have two questions. First, do you think that a single traveler can enjoy himself in the Lake District? Second, is there enough to do for 5 days? My thought was that I was going to spend most of the time hiking through the District. Does that seem reasonable? Also, I'm going to rent a car, do you think that's a good idea? I guess that's actually 4 questions.
