Walking around lake Buttermere | Lake District days outFriday, May 15, 2015
While we were away on our mini break to the Lade District a few weeks ago we took a day trip out further afield to Buttermere. Can you walk around the lake? Oh yes you can! It turns out that Buttermere is far busier than Ennerdale, parking is expensive and you'll be lucky to get any. The walk around the lake was much shorter (apparently you can so it in two hours) we had 4 hours parking and spent just over 3 hours walking and picture-taking before dropping into the charming farm coffee shop for refreshments and a little sit down. The walk itself was on good, wide, well-kept paths. There was one area of flat rock to ascend but the vast majority of the path was easy walking and fairly flat. As easy walks go, this was right up there. The scenery, of course, was beautiful and inspiring.
Personally, I'd choose to go back to Ennerdale out of the two.
Have you ever been to Buttermere?
