I know all that area very well myself,having spent many years staying at Windermere, Keswick,Grasmere,but mainly Ambleside, as bases for walking. Also been up a couple of times with mates and camped at Brothers water down near the Inn.
In fact I am riding up to Hawkshead this coming Saturday with 7 other bikes for one night only .So hopefully I will have more luck with the weather,and looking at the forcast we might be lucky
One of my favorite views of the Kirkstone Pass Inn,apart from being sat inside it having a pint, is looking down on it from the summint of Red Screes that faces it.
