Three lakes - Buttermere, Crummock Water and nearby Loweswater together with surrounding lakeland peaks provide great walking in this easily reached valley - it's just fifteen minutes from Keswick and Cockermouth. Magnificent nature predominates with little to disturb it apart from the hamlet of Buttermere, a small church, two hotels and a number of small B&B's, a campsite and a youth hostel.The walking can be tough if you head for the high tops or much more gentle if you so prefer. Little bits of Buttermere have found their way around the world - especially in the form of roofing slate. Green slate is mined at the head of the valley at the Honister Slate Mine. It's open to the public and a visit makes for a fascinating hour or two.
