Photos of Buttermere

Buttermere has been a popular visitor attraction since the Victorian period, and it is easy to see why. There are a number of attractive walks to be had from Buttermere village, and paths lead along the shore of the lake in both directions. Many visitors park at Gatesgarth, at the eastern tip of the lake, but since that can be very crowded I suggest Buttermere village or Crag Wood, halfway along the lake.
