The only formal 'lake' in Lakeland, Bassenthwaite is right next to a major road but there are limited viewpoints to be the best of the view. When conditions are right it can offer misty morning beauty and is also an intersting option for some astrophotography. However like most of the Lakes there is still some light pollution and so you have to pick the right night. At least you can position yourself well for sunrise.
