It would also give you an extra evening in the White Lion, one of if not the most friendly and helpful pubs that I enjoyed on my trip. Great food and drink as well.

The 'steamer' to Howtown and then the awalk back to Patterdale alongside the lake is delightful - one of AWs favourites, and I like the White Lion too.
A stop in Grasmere offers the opportunity to visit Wordsworth's Dove Cottage or to take a bus north to Keswick or South to Ambleside, Windermere or Kendal.
Agree with the other points on Richmond and Whitby. If you have time after the walk don't miss out on a visit to York ; bus from RHB to Scarborough & then train.

We did rest days at Kirkby Stephens and Richmond. These are about at 1/3 points in the walk.
The older we get, the better we were.

Thank you all for your suggestions ...we have them all written down and are considering a very leisurly walk to take in all the sights.
Being from England myself, now living in Florida...I have some wonderful memories of camping in the summers, alot of those where in the Cumbria area..The only way I could talk friends into doing the C2C was to include some wonderful stops along the way..
Thanks again,
