Buttermere is slightly off the beaten track in the Lake District, making it feel particularly remote and dramatic even in a region that is very remote and dramatic to start with. However, this means that finding vegan food can be difficult. The wonderful Syke Farm Tea Room will keep you fed for breakfast and lunch, but evening meals will be harder to come by.

However, for the camper or self-caterer Buttermere offers some of the most spectacular mountains in the Lake District. It may not have the most famous names (although Haystacks and High Stile have their supporters) but you can plan walks from here that go all day without crossing a road or possibly even seeing another traveller. That feeling of solitude isn’t available on the busier fells and is one of the great appeals of the less travelled parts of the lakes.

Finally, it would be impossible to talk about Buttermere without mentioning the spectacular drive through Honister Pass (a visit to the slate mine is recommended), Borrowdale and back up to Keswick. In either direction this is one of the most breathtaking journeys in Britain.
