With some frame bags etc. would my Whyte 905 make a good bike for some trekking/exploring and odd overnight stay in Lake District

I see you have a rather nice £1,700 hardtail which I'm guessing may not have bosses for luggage, so bike packing bags may be your only answer.

Provided you can carry all you need securely it doesn't matter how you carry it.

MTBs are not set up for mileage, but if you are confident you can do the required daily distances comfortably, there's no reason why the Whyte couldn't do the job.

More bike in van, park up and explore linking off road routes together with road sections. Had thought of a Whyte friston or Gisburn (Friend has one) and cycling the 20 mile up to lakes and then doing same thing of linking routes off road with road riding and back home same day. Occasionally the odd night stay.
At moment I chuck bike in van and drive up, park and ride routes Off the pedal north site
