Buttermere (England) Reviews
Description:situated in an isolated corner of the Lake District it is an ideal location for a club weekend visit.
Newest Review: ... perfect setting of a beautiful lake surrounding by mountains. I love the way the shadows from the surrounding hills give the lake a different appearance depending on the time of day and the weather. Buttermere means the lake by the dairy pastures and this sums it up perfectly. Buttermere is surrounded by lush green fields, mountains and water. It is in a valley with only one road out so ... more

Buttermere is probably one of my favourite places and as I am lucky enough to live within a few hours' drive of it, somewhere I can visit often.

A place of awe inspiring beauty and majesty, Buttermere is situated in an isolated corner of the Lake District. The journey into Buttermere is no less inspiring. There are two very scenic routes leading to Buttermere. From Keswick you can travel through Borrowdale up Honister pass. The pass ascends very steeply, and when you reach the top it sweeps down into a valley. You are immediately struck by the very steep sides of the valley and the littering of rocks and boulders. A hint, maybe of past climactic history. The atmosphere is still and quiet, save for the trickle of water along the valley floor. This is a spectacular way to reach Buttermere. The ...
