Mountainbike holiday in the UK where to go for beginners?

I am from Holland and my wife and I would like to spend our summer holidays mountainbiking. We are both over 50 and have just started so the trails should be easy to medium and climbing should be limited to max 1500 ft for a 20 to 30 mile trip.

My wife proposed the lake district, however it appears the trails are pretty steep, huge amounts of climbing, very technical trails and then the weather...

We want to take the ferry to Hull so we are looking for a destination somewhere in that area. Alternatives could be North York Moors, Peak District or Yorkshire Dales but all options are open.

As I said, easy to medium trails, no excessive climbing an preferably some chance of good weather.

Any recommendations?
