Best place in Lake District for 3 day trip with 89yr old mum

I plan to travel by train from Edinburgh to Windermere with my 89 year old fit, mobile Mum. Looking for a clean, comfortable B&B or Hotel for 2 nights in the vicinity. Mid range budget. Good if gardens or local places of interest to visit nearby,. Would prefer to avoid inclines as she'd struggle a bit with that. I would also prefer not to hire a car but will do if necessary.

Can anyone help who has perhaps done a similar trip?

Many thanks

I think you're putting the cart before the horse a bit here looking for a hotel without knowing if there are suitable places to visit and if it's possible to get around by public transport! So before you jump the guns and find a hotel on the top of a hill with no local bus service.....look at tourist info sites for the Lake District and identify some places you'd like to visit. Places you might like - Brockhole visitors centre, boat trip on Windermere, Beatrix Potter House, Grasmere?? Then see if there's public transport connections to them and narrow down your accommodation search from here.
