Holidays in Buttermere allow you to get away from it all as well as to satisfy your inner adventurer. Nestled in a narrow valley beneath a natural amphitheater of black rock, Buttermere reveals a beautiful landscape of towering fells, lush green fields, and peaceful lakes. Attracting photography buffs, the play of light and shade in the serene valley has earned it the status of one of the country's favorite views. An easy and level walk round the lake remains the best way to enjoy this tranquil, and yet dramatic, scenery. You can also explore some of the popular fell walking routes and climb to the summits of Haystacks and Red Pike. If you need to recharge, the hamlet of Buttermere provides sufficient options for dining and accommodations.
