Cottages in Buttermere and Crummock Water

If you are looking for a tranquil self catering cottage in the Lake District then choosing the Buttermere and Crummock Water Valley may be just what you have been searching for.

As you know Discover Cumbria is rather selective about its choice of cottages. With this in mind, and the size of Buttermere we don't have many cottages to bring you in this area, but and its a big BUT - we think you'll like the ones we do have.

    Newlands Valley

    There is just something so very beautiful about The Newlands Valley. Taking you as it does through pretty rural Cumbria. With spectacular walking opportunities and spots to picnic. Just a short drive away you have Honister Slate Mine with its Via Ferrata, for those in need of an adrenalin rush and for those like me who love to lap up the splendid tranquility where better than by Buttermere and Crummock Water. Have I persuaded you that this is a great place for a holiday yet?

    Stair House is the type of property that you pass all the time whilst journeying through Cumbria. Here is your chance to step through the door and enjoy typical Cumbrian living. With Stair House, everything that should be there is, and more. The beams, inglenook fireplace, stone flag floors and wood panel doors remind you that this cottage dates back to 1647, whilst the Egyptian cotton bed linen, timeless wood-burning stove and attention to detail such as Cumbrian-slate kitchen counter tops remind you that Stair Cottage has been refurbished to a high level of perfection.
