|Subject: Re: UK Lake District|
Several years ago I stayed at Pitcairn House in Keswick - http://www.pitcairnhouse.co.uk/
It was run by the friendly Lillian Davies who was helpful at directing me to local attractions and hiking trails. The hotel offered a choice at breakfast (which is not always the case at British B&Bs but which I always appreciate), clean rooms and a central location. I thought it was good value. I would definitely return.
