We will be visiting in August from Australia and will be driving Cambridge to Lake District and staying a few day. I have two questions
(1) where would be a good town or village to stop for a couple of hours on the way. I thought of Buxton which seems pretty and not far off the track. Any other suggestions?
(2) I know it's a busy time of the year so where would be pretty and reasonably quiet to stay in the Lake District?
Thanks so much
