Thanks for the response Kathy and others.

Catbells sounds better. We want a few hours out not an extradition

I will start pulling an itinerary together soon.

The internet can be great sometimes

On a scary side note: I used the car park at the Low Wood Bay hotel (sister hotel to Waterhead) as a base for a nice walk to Orrest Head which has good Windermere views. When I returned to the car park, a car parked at the top of the car park had rolled back and smashed into a newish VW which was itself knocked into the adjoining Range Rover. All this just 3 cars away from where I was parked. There was this line of high end cars just targets for this old Corsa or something. I was very lucky - just a few degrees of wheel turn lucky.
Note to self. Park at top of slopes when possible

Was just going to tripadvisor a decent hotel near or inside the walls and find a bar. Any guidance though?

i stayed at the hilton in gateshead (newcastle) next to river own car park on one of those deals - i was working in newcastle

to be honest there are just loads of lovely places just a short drive out of the main conurbations in all directions.

local tourist board is perhaps the best

B&B or Hotel?

http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_R...e_England.html is a good pub more or less attached to the Bar walls. Under 100 or over?

Premier Inn in decent location re centre.
