|Subject: Re: Lake District England|
Hi again, Margaret.
I stayed in a B&B in the town of Caldbeck in the north of the Lake District. However, it was kind of plain and the woman who rain it wasn't particularly warm so I won't recommend that one.
But if you're going to be in the south of Cumbria, there is a lovely place in the town of Ulverston (which isn't in the Lake District National Park but is nearby). I think it's called The White House (or something very close) and it's run by a lovely lady and her husband. I recommend this place.
I stayed there when I started out on my journey on The Cumbria Way, which is a long distance trail through the Lake District from north to south. It took 5 days to complete and my partner and I stayed in a variety of youth hostels (such a good system in Britain) and B&B's. I can say without hesitation that of all the holidays I've ever taken, that's definitely one of the nicest. Yes, it rained sometimes, but when the sun came out it was all the more magical. This was in July yet it wasn't crowded, perhaps because we stayed away from most of the main tourist towns. It was SO beautiful.
