Hi there. Can anyone give 3 very confused but enthusiastic walkers some advice as to where to stay in the Lake District? We like peace and quiet, beautiful views, access to a shop if poss, ability to walk from the cottage without getting into a car everyday and somewhere to sit out and take it all in. We are not keen on touristy honeyspots but don't want to be too remote and spend all our time travelling to places. We have walked in Yorkshire, Exmoor, Northumbria and the Peak District but feel we should get to the Lakes before we get too old to walk them!
