Buttermere and Borrowdale
Buttermere and Borrowdale are adjoining valleys that encompass everything that is best about the beautiful Lake District.

With a charming patchwork of rugged hills and wide fields criss-crossed by traditional dry stone walls, plus the many burbling brooks and streams that are so characteristic of the area, this corner of the Lake District is a veritable feast for the eyes. Unspoilt countryside stretches as far as the eye can see, providing a haven for wildlife and walkers alike.

Buttermere Valley, is home to a series of gorgeous lakes, and it offers a rich terrain slightly more off the beaten track that its charming neighbour. Don’t miss a trip up to the highest and most impressive waterfall in the whole of the Lake District, Scale Force.

The Borrowdale Valley boasts some famously dramatic scenery, home as it is to some of England’s highest mountains. Pretty villages sit in the shadows of ancient forests, and the River Derwent wends its way through the panorama in as scenic a manner as is possible to imagine. The brave at heart should head to the perilously balanced Bowder Stone, and steel themselves to stand beneath it.

A short distance to the north is Derwentwater where you can enjoy sailing, kayaking and canoeing or simply take some beautiful lakeside strolls. For unsurpassable views, visit Ashness Bridge, to view at first hand a bucolic scene that has been committed to canvas countless times over the years.
