This is a stunning lake and out of season is very quiet. We have been visiting for over 30 years and on this visit had 2 dogs. Either the left or right bank walk are excellent. Lovely views from the left bank in particular as...More

One of the quieter lakes and well worth a visit. It is likely to take 3 hours or so to do the full walk around the lake. The scenery is breathtaking and the solitude delightful. Be prepared for some boggy and in parts rocky ground,...More

This is a stretch of water that can look sinister on a dull day. It can be beautiful but not a favourite. It's a marmite choice! Never completed the entire walk but believe on return it involves a road walk. The 'Lakeside' walk we did...More

Whether walking from one of the car parks to the edge of the lake, or walking around the lake, the are always breathtaking views that differ with each visit, depending on the season, light and weather. Highly recommended.

All of the years I have spent holidays in the lake district specifically in the keswick area and I cannot recall ever visiting Crummock water. After looking at the map and seeing this area and realising we hadn't been before, off we went. A reasonably...More

We visited this lake before Buttermere. It was much quieter and the shore line just past the camp site is lovely to sit and ponder. Great photo opportunities as well. Worth a visit before heading around Buttermere.

The little sister to Buttermere Lake, this location was the first during our week in the Lake District where we 'hit' lots of people at the same place. Just outside of 'peak time' we had been lucky not to be slowed by traffic and have...More
