Lake District - A Drunken Duck, A Pheasant or Better ?

Jump to last reply

We are visiting England to walk the towns of ancestors during late August.

We are planning 5 nights in the Peak and Lake Districts after 3 days in the Melton Mowbray Region.

We are used to driving long distances here in Australia to obtain changes of scenery. So England is very compact by comparison and we are quite happy to spend a half a day driving and a half a day walking to see as much as we can.

The Lake District is clearly a small but beautiful region that we are very much looking forward to visiting. We read that the roads in the main towns are likely to be somewhat congested and so we will try to avoid gridlock and the traps of tourism where possible.

Early research points to the Drunken Duck at Hawkshead and The Pheasant near Keswick as possible options that interest, us although we do read some disturbing comments on Tripadvisor of the former.

Where should we stay for three nights in the Lake District ? We are equally happy in a hotel or B&B provided that there is a king size bed available :-)

Thank you for any thoughts or advice.
