We are planning to visit the area betwen August 8th - 15th. We are looking for a reasonably priced hotel or guest house and would like to pay about 100GBP per room per night, not including dinner. There is so much choice on the internet and I am totally confused! The 4 star hotels seem very expensive, but some of the b&b's and guest houses are too basic.
Which is the best area in which to stay - Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere or Kendal? We want scenic views and easy access to places of interest and the Lake District tours. We are also looking for vegetarian restaurants .
Any advice on "must sees" in the area? We will have a car but do not wan tto be driving long distances from our base.
All help in planning our visit much appreciated! It is getting very tiring...
