Having recently completed the Pennine Way, I am now looking to the ODP for my next LDP. I am a "Marilyn bagger", so this influences my choice of LDPs. The ODP, like the PW, goes across the summit of several Marilyns.

We like "comfortable" days, averaging something like 13/14 miles. What are the recommended stopping off points? We like youth hostels, but we don't like long off-path diversions to get to them - so Capel-y-fin doesn't look viable! Are there any places where finding accommodation is difficult? What, if any baggage forwarding services operate along the ODP?

Thanks, Tom
