How far are you from the Lake district park if you want to hike? Do we need a car to get there from the hotel?
We did a lot of walking but from Keswick and then walked to Derwent water. We caught a bus from penrith Bus station (next to train station) which runs every 30 minutes both ways to Keswick and walked from there.
We didn't do any hiking at the time so you would perhaps have to check what bus routes there are around
I would recommend you drove further into the National Park before starting your hike. It's about 6 miles down to Ullswater from the town centre. There are buses available from Penrith on a regular basis and The George is 5 mins from the bus station.
