Yes, that's the very day we're starting. Staying at Abbey Farmhouse in St Bees on the Friday night and the Shepherds Arms at Ennerdale on Saturday. Then we're going slightly 'non-standard', hoping to do the ridge route and stop the next night at Black Sail YH.
The Shepherds Arms was good when I stayed there four years ago.
"hoping to stop the next night at Black Sail YH" - but have you booked ? Very popular, Black Sail is regularly fully booked long in advance, but there are often spare beds at Ennerdale YH four miles down the valley.
