Buttermere Tourist Information

Buttermere

Buttermere

Located to the South West of Keswick, Buttermere, meaning ‘the lake by the dairy pastures’ in ancient English, is a favourite area for walking holidays in the North Lakes featuring some of the famous fell walker Alfred Wainwright’s favourite peaks including the mighty Haystacks, High Stile Fell and Red Pike. You’ll find an excellent choice of holiday cottage accommodation in the area, offering the perfect Lakeland country retreat.

Beautiful, peaceful lakes are also here in Buttermere all framed by spectacular fells including the National Trust property Ennerdale. Hire a boat and head out on Crummock Water and Loweswater or take a gentle stroll up to Lakeland’s highest waterfall, the magnificent Scale Force.

Nestling at the foot of Honister Pass, Buttermere is dotted with a selection of charming heritage inns serving fine ales and hearty pub meals like the popular Fish Inn with an on-site brewery – Hesket Newmarket, makers of a delicious range of ales, many of which are named after local peaks including Haystacks.
