I would recommend Ambleside: there's a frequent bus service (555) from Windermere (which it is very close to) and you can do day-hikes without a bus to Grasmere and quite a few fells (e.g. Fairfield). With short bus trip (at least in Summer) you can get up the Langdale valley, and on to Coniston or towards Keswick for day-hikes on some classic hills (the Old ...

Mostly they are meant to show people the local nature reserve and do relatively few miles with a lot of (Dutch language) explanations. There are also loads of unguided walks, from a single kilometer to multi-day walks that take up to over a week to ...

Only 3 kilometers apart You can't exit on the other side of the runways, that's quite clear so if you just take this https://goo.gl/maps/bkn67 section, it's already 3km and you are not yet on the other side of the airport. Then from the point you provide (or so) to the very outskirts of the town https://goo.gl/maps/wRIop it's another 2km. So you are ...
