#2 of 24 in Trails in Lake District
Enjoy tranquility amidst a dramatic landscape at Buttermere, 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.
