UK Trip planning help required.

Hi all, could really use some help with planning a trip in July. Starting point will be BSB’s at Oulton Park. From there thinking of heading up to the lake district for a bit and then possibly around peak district. Were leaving it very late to plan! Need any help with finding campsites, roads to use, places to go and see etc etc. Any online references would be a massive help and personal recommendations would be greatful. Thank you, Dan.

sorry - try asking frontslide for the peaks info and marc for the lakes info - hth

These are some cracking roads, the details were all given to me from a guy on another forum when i was up there a few times last year,

I myself definately reccommend doing Hartside if you can (the cakes and meat and potato pie at the cafe are worth it if nothing else ) and also the A595 though we did the whole of it (in two parts over two trips) , Buttertubs is excellent but needs to be treated with respect or it will have you off,

The A6 over Shap from Kendal to Penrith is one, from there Hartside is 12 miles away, or you can turn left at Penrith and take the A66 west and turn off to do the Kirkstone Pass from north to south.

The west coast road A595 is an absolute belter from Ulverston all the way up to Calder Bridge, it’s a bit **** after that so just turn round and do it backwards :lol:

There’'s Devils Bridge and all the roads in the vicinity like the Ribblehead road from Ingleton to Hawes, from Hawes if your feeling really adventurous you can ride the Buttertubs Pass over to Reeth in upper Swaledale, you can take the low road round to Sedburgh from Hawes and pop over to Kendal or you can turn south and head back to Devils.

Up to you really, but you’'ll love them all

Cant recommend any accomodation really as we just hired out a cottage everytime we went up there, found some lovely places by using
