I would recommend Ambleside, and the...

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stay in this guest house last weekend for the second time. The location is just perfect, so close to the shops/ pubs and some fantastic walks.

Can't fault the place. Warm welcome, great room, fab breakfast, friendly hosts, lockup secure car parking 2 minutes away for only £3 a day. You MUST eat at Fellinis - 30 seconds across the road. Or their partner Zeffirellis. They do a cinema meal combo.
