Chasing down a rabbit hole, Peel Island was given to the National Trust in 1933 by the 8th Duke of Buccleuch.

So the answer would appear (at the time of SA, SD, and WH) to be #3. Most of the land owned by the NT and on the Western shores of either Windermere or Coniston Water appears to have been acquired post-1935, so was presumably privately-owned during the time of PP. Much of the possible land of PP is not owned by the NT even now. Lake District National Park was only created in 1951, and the National Park actually owns less than 4% of the total park area.
