This is one of my favourite lakes. Stunning location and a great do-able low-level walk which nice cafe/hotel facilities nearby.

“Beware”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

Great place, but beware of some staff at the Bridge Hotel.
Fantastic evening in the restaurant with sharon our waitress for 2 nights. Great asset to the hotel. Polite, friendly and nothing was to much trouble. Such a relaxing evening both nights.

“Awesome words can't explain.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Amazing, stunning, peaceful. It was one of our trips to the Lake District and we are glad we saw it. Unlike Windermere which is very commercial and touristy, Buttermere is just breathtaking.....a hidden quiet gem which I feel reluctant to even share this place! :-) We didn't get to stay long and saw it before sunset. The roads to this place can be quite difficult as they are very narrow and windy but once you're there its worth the drive. Definitely coming back to absorb this place. You forget the troubles or the workload you have left behind. Really tranquil. Definitely worth an explore and a place to retreat. The place is ideal for anyone couples, family with young kids, friends or solo.
