Where to stay half way between London and Glasgow?

I am going to be driving from London to Glasgow in a couple of weeks. I do not want to do the drive all in one go, I will be on my own. So I want to stay somewhere half way.

Not in a motorway service station, but somewhere nice where I can see a bit of the countryside. Looking at the map Lancaster and the Lake District look a good distance to stop at.

Any recommendations for a nice hotel in those areas? Anyone else done this journey, where do your stop?

I think the Lake District (although lovely smile) is before halfway, maybe closer to Manchester would be better?

Oh just realised it’s London to Glasgow, sorry smile. Once you get to the Lake District it’s only about 2 more hours to Glasgow so Lancaster or just before would probably be about halfway x

I think we stayed at a Holiday Inn near Liverpool for the same journey.

Tickled Trout at Preston is nice, just off the motorway.

The opposite of nice countryside but we usually stop at Blackpool to break up the journey.

What about stopping off at Crewe? I break the drive when I'm driving up from London to visit family by stopping overnight at Crewe Hall. It's only a few mins drive from the M6 but has a stunning Jacobean hall (which you can stay in) and a modern conference suite with pool and spa. And lovely grounds / gardens.

Lakes, Stop at Kendal, then drive round Ullswater to rejoin the motorway.
