• Buttermere’s name means ‘lake by the dairy pastures'.
• The Buttermere Valley is a picture postcard of blue ribbon lakes (Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater).
• These lakes are ‘knotted' together at the small villages of Buttermere and Loweswater.
• The tiny village of Buttermere comprises two inns, a few farms, a small chapel and some isolated houses.
• A scattering of farms and houses make up Loweswater, a community held together by the twin magnets of its church and adjacent hostelry.
• The traditional character of Buttermere and Loweswater is largely due to The National Trust, which owns much of the land and preserves its special qualities.
• The only vehicular access into this valley is from Cockermouth to the north or via the snaking passes over Honister and Newlands Hause.
