Self-catering holiday accommodation in Buttermere
A small hamlet between the lakes of Buttermere and Crummock Water, the land that Buttermere is on was once debris from the surrounding hills. In the village itself you can find St James’ Church, where a memorial lies for Alfred Wainwright, the famous walker and author of the Wainwright guidebooks.
Locally there are plenty of low-level walks perfect for beginners and other more experienced walks. One such walk takes you around Crummock Water to the Lake District’s highest waterfall, Scale Force. At 170ft, it towers above you in a tree-lined gorge and is a spectacular sight at all times of year. Buttermere Lake is a popular one for family-friendly walks with a 2-3 hour relatively flat walk around it.
A stay in our Buttermere cottages means you are well placed for exploring Keswick and the North Lakes too.
