There was a break in the clouds at around 1am to the south, that may have looked north to you from where you were.
But to my entire north, right to the horizon was clouds....even the moon, which was south easterly? was rarely out from behind them.
Sounds like you came up the A591 from south Lakeland, there are quite numerous little villages scattered around there, all quaint little stone
cottages and what not.
By the sounds of it, you've probably found one of the many car parks along Thirlmere, it can get quite dark out that way, and some sections are quite
high up above sea level, perfect for viewing.
