There is not much else in Lake District suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
