Could anyone recommend a (or some) lake district fells which might provide a decent view of the sunrise?

Not sure how reliable it is but this website suggests it might be a clear morning on Saturday

There are some bonus criteria! 

Parking within c.20-30 min drive of Ambleside; the view should be less than 1.5hour walk from the parking (I don't want to have to get up too early!)

Thanks for any advice! 

P.s. I had considered High Street as that seems to have a good Eastern facing view but I'm not sure we'd be able to get up there in time from Hartsop without setting off earlier than I want to.

Ill Bell. Park at Kentmere church. Get some good inversions there too sometimes.

Park at the Kirkstone inn and head up to Stoney cove pike. If you have time you could carry on towards high street over thornthwaite crag.

Swirl Howe accessed from the summit of Wrynose Pass. You get a fantastic view of the Scafell Range and 1000 ft of motorised uplift. It’s also one of the best vantage points for picking out all the major summits as the sun hits them.

Place Fell from Patterdale. Park near White Lion - should be space in the layby at your time of day.

Drive to the top of Hardknott Pass and amble up to Hard Knott Summit.  That's pretty easy.

Or if you sleep in, leave the car in Ambleside and just walk to the top of Wansfell Pike

That’s just a more rubbish version of my suggestion with a longer drive, ;-)
