We are planning to go to Keswick from Leicester next January. I am not sure which is the best way to travel there. I would prefer not renting a car but I am open to it if it is the best way. I am failing to find any train tickets available (from Leicester to Keswick(Bus Station)).

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions covering tasks normally performed by travel agents such as constructing travel and tour itineraries (including scheduling and budgeting) are off-topic. They are generally too specific to your personal preference, with many variables and possibilities, and are probably not helpful to others.

The train doesn't go to Keswick. You should buy a train ticket to Penrith and then take a local bus. Check on http://www.traveline.info as it's the best website for public transport in the UK.
A National Express coach journey from Leicester to Keswick, with a change in Birmingham, will take about 8 hours and set you back £50 for a single.
