Buttermere is a lake and tiny village of the same name tucked away in a picture-perfect valley. With barely over 100 residents, this community has a much more remote and relaxed feel than the neighbouring town of Keswick. This is an ideal place to walk around the lake, which takes around 2 hours and offers great views all around. 

Charming atmosphere aside, much of the attraction here is in the drive itself: following the Honister Pass from Keswick, the road twists and turns around hairpin turns, climbing up to 356 metres on gradients of up to 25 percent.
