A stunning place to walk. Narrow roads to get there but worth it when you get there. Car park is £4 for 2 hours £6 for 4 hours. We walked up for an hour and then headed back. Still worth it.

This walk is dominated by two spectacular views: the famous vista of the Buttermere fells seen over Crummock Water, and the dramatic rocky buttress of Grasmoor End, looming over the northern end of the lake.

What a delight these woods are. Clear paths to follow, spent an hour or so enjoying the bluebells and the view across Crummock Water.

This is a lovely wood with easy paths through to Crummock Water... would suit all abilities and lots of streams and puddles for the dogs to play in. There is a National Trust car park there and this can get very busy in summer. The...More
