The tiny village of Buttermere comprises two inns, a few farms, a small chapel and some isolated houses - its name meaning ‘lake by the dairy pastures'. 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.
