Visiting Lake District

We would like to travel from Bedford to Oxenholmie, spend a night and the next day in Lake District and return to London in August. Are there any convenient Bus Services from Bedford to Oxenholmie? We will be having our bags too. Is this feasible to do or we must do a day trip from London? Please advise. Thanks.

Even London to the Lake District for a day trip or even one night stay is not worth your while!! Check train times www.nationalrail.co.uk from London to Windermere and you'll find that most of your time will be spent travelling. Also if you don't have a car the Lake District isn't the easiest of places to get around by public transport - I'm not saying it's impossible but it would probably mean you watching the clock a lot and doing some very careful travel planning. Plus if you intend to stay overnight you may struggle to find accommodation now for August.

Even from London I really wouldnt bother. Its still half day travel each way. Just go somewhere closer.

Just another point to bear in mind.

At busy times many accommodations don't accept one night bookings, they ask for two nights.

Sorry, but trying to do the Lakes in a day trip from London is a really terrible idea, unless your idea of fun is spending all day travelling with just a brief interlude in the middle to take a hurried look at some scenery.
