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.

  • Lake Lake Battermere got seems to have its own unique climate, which can be changed arbitrarily between sunny and rainy days. The lake is clear and transparent, and there are countless mountain springs left in the mountains, which is really a fairyland. There's no signal here at all, but you don't have to worry about getting lost, and if you use an EE phone card, you'll also show your real-time GPs. Please walk on the side without the road, the scenery is much better. In Lake Lake Battermere got, far from the tourists and the hustle and bustle, you will get an unforgettable memory.

  • It was a sunny day, and it's so cozy and chill. There is a clean and beautiful lake for family with dogs to travel. There were two dogs playing water there and they did enjoy this place also. There were also ducks by the lake playing water. It's just like a scenery that would seen in movies.
  • Always a great place to visit to sit and take the view in or a great walk walk around lakes or push up the hills. About a mile from fields of bluebells
  • Great walk around the lake. Lovely cakes and teas at the cafe
  • Firm favourite. 5 miles to walk around the lake. Nice cafe to visit in the village.
  • More lake district epicness! Truly beautiful surrounded by the truly beautiful.
