Create an itinerary including Buttermere Lake
Enjoy tranquility amidst a dramatic landscape at Buttermere Lake, a scenic lake by a dairy pasture. Take a footpath along the perimeter of the water, and enjoy views of the Lake District's classic combination of lakes and mountains. Climb up Haystacks and Red Pike to get sweeping vistas of the Lakeland. Easy access through the farm and woodland setting makes the lake one of the most popular family strolls in the area. You can usually enjoy some refreshments at two nearby farms--try the locally made ice cream.

  • We were recommended this by Sally at the local hotel. This place is absolutely beautiful. Breathtaking views all around us. The path takes you all around the lake. Fantastic walk.
