I will be visiting the lakes with my boyfriend between the 24th and 31st July. Now when I posted a couple of months ago, many suggested we hire a car. Now, I posted today a new thread asking about routes people can suggest for us to take to go around (by car) and someone posted that we should explore the lakes on foot not by car.
I'm SUPER confused now. Should we hire a car or not?? What would you do? I'm so torn now... I don't think I've been this confused before when travelling! So your help will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, we'll be arriving in Manchester Airport at 9:20pm on 24th July so the train isn't really an option so IF we were to hire a car, we'd pick it up from there and then drive to Ambleside (we're staying at The Fisherbeck).
Any help will be IMMENSELY appreciated at this panic stage!
