The most amazing views! One of my favourites!! The waterfalls, the little white cross, the farmers fields and the animals! A stunning place suitable for the whole family.

2 hour walk around the lake, not too taxing. Absolutely stunning scenery. Would thoroughly recommend for visitors to the area - this really is one of the most beautiful lakes.

Only a few houses, farms and a hotel make up the village but the surrounding countryside is stunning. The farmshop tea rooms are fnatastic. Well worth a visit off the beaten track

The National Trust have done an amazing job of maintaining a really accessible path around Buttermere. There's one short stretch on the (very quiet) road but otherwise all footpath. If only everyone would respect it. It's not a cycle path but that didn't stop one...More

Just a nice, relaxed walk. We climbed to the top of one of the waterfalls and the view was just insane. Loved it

It takes around 2 hours to walk all around the lake. We started at the village after paying the ubiquitous parking fees in the national park. The walk is undulating on good pathways with the exception of a short roadside walk at the far end...More

There are buses but as we had a car I didn't take much notice of how frequent the buses were. I should thin it is 45 mins to an hour by car
