You can't, you'll have to wait until the next day

You can't - waiting until next morning is the only option

You can get as far as Preston arrive 0100 but are then stuck there for 4-5 hours before the first train north.

And if I wait until the morning, is there any bus? or somebody can send me a timetable?

You take the train to Penrith then the X4/X5 to Keswick

Book trains tickets when the cheap tickets become available which is about 12 weeks before the date of travel.

There's no practical way of making the whole journey by bus - it would be a string of local buses and it would take all day.

You'd need to get a train to Windermere or Penrith and a bus from there. Timetable links below

Hi,

The first train to Penrith from the airport, with no changes, is at 06:18am. There's an earlier train, but that would require you to make 2 changes and you wouldn't arrive in Penrith that much earlier.

If you are travelling in the next couple of months, I suggest that you purchase your tickets soon. Advance tickets for next week are quite cheap, if you are traveling after that, the tickets are even cheaper .

As stated, you would have to catch a bus from Penrith to Keswick.

Good luck!

Or alternatively, you could hire a car at Manchester airport.
