Sorry gonna have to add my own ???
Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District.
I like the scenery and the walking there.
Include a little history in your walks. Pecsaetan - Ancient Derbyshire, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire - http://pecsaetan.weebly.com/
Well most of the really tempting places on an a priori basis for walking don't offer great options for anything much else.
North yorkshire certainly good, also Manchester and the area round there do let you hit an awfully large percentage of the really good English hills whilst still being big enough places for everything else. Or Newcastle etc.
Must of course be some similarly very well placed towns/cities in Scotland, probably with better hills too

Scottish Highlands 3 hours away.
Talking of Cumbria, Kirkby Stephen would certainly work in terms of location very near a huge range of hills. On the train to Leeds/Carlisle too.
Although those trains do also mean that you can be there in a hour or two from a lot of other places.....
Can't see me changing my contact details any time soon!

An hour's bus-ride to some great Lakeland walks...
Two hours on the train to the airport for the rest of the world!
