Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cumbria / Lake District / Cockermouth / Buttermere / Buttermere Lake
Enjoy tranquility amidst a dramatic landscape at Buttermere Lake, 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. With our international travel planner, Cockermouth attractions like Buttermere Lake can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
