I was looking around Keszthely too, given that is the north west shore of the lake. The other side of the lake would be the south shore which is even harder to fit into the "north west" part of Mr Piggy's guidance.

Mr Google thinks you mean Bugtussle Hollow, Tennessee 37334, USA.

If that is correct then you are still too far north. I opted for somewhere sunny today.

Head just a little north from there. You may have to veer slightly west, depending whereabouts in the park you are.

So, the secret is out .... Prince Harry has taken up cooking to make end's meet.

After you've had your fill of Harry's fine fare, continue on same heading (east and south).
