Secret Valley of Buttermere – Official Lake District Guided Walk

11 August @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

A National Park Volunteer-led guided walk taking in the famous Rannerdale Knotts and the Secret Valley

Start point: Buttermere Court Hotel (formerly The Fish), Buttermere

Length: 6.5km (4 miles) with 285m (931ft) of ascent

Time: 3.5 hours (approx)

An Easy+ half day walk starting from in front of the Buttermere Court Hotel, to visit the Secret Valley of Buttermere.

This delightful route begins with a walk to the southern end of Crummock Water, after which it follows a green path uphill before descending steeply to meet a path which leads to the secret valley. After spending time to enjoy the scenery of Rannderdale, the walk continues up hill to reach the highest point of the walk, which offers great views of the Buttermere Valley. From there, the route follows wide green paths back down to Buttermere Village.

The route is along paths and tracks with some gates. Paths are generally good but there are some sections that are uneven and rocky underfoot and which may be muddy and slippery in poor weather.

Participants will need to dress appropriately for the terrain and weather. Weather permitting, we will be stopping for a short break on route so please bring refreshments if you wish.
