Buttermere - THE prettiest Lake

It’s no secret, the Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in England! Filled with epic walks; surrounded by a diverse landscape; ranging from picturesque lakes to craggy fells.

Without doubt the best way to explore this amazing landscape is by foot. To start this epic challenge we rise from beside beautiful Buttermere to ascend the steep climb to the summit of magnificent Red Pike.

We continue until 7 of Wainwright's favourite peaks are bagged, including Haystacks, where he would famously sit beside the tranquil Innominate Tarn pondering life. This the site his ashes were famously spread by his long suffering wife...

Buttermere Lake District 7 Peaks Challenge:

Our trek is accompanied by breath-taking views over Buttermere and Crummock Water one way and out into the Lakeland Fells the other. Finally we drop back down to stroll home along the eastern bank of Buttermere - a scene pictured in films and TV series, including 'The A-Word'
