I am visiting the Lake District in September with my girlfriend and we want to try a different area to the Windermere and Ambleside area. We have been there several times and although we really love it, we would like to stay nearer to one of the other lakes that's less busy.
Could anyone advise? We are into walking and intend to hike up a few of the higher mountains but have no particular ones in mind. We would also like to stay somewhere within walking distance of a few good pubs.
Thanks in advance
