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.

    Fabulous reviews for this scenic self catering property. With three bathrooms and a lounge conservatory and dining room - this would suit a couple of families sharing or a larger family although couples have stayed here and loved it too. We weren't able to show you all the photos of Lanthwaite Green New Farmhouse so please do check them out - we love that there are views even from the bathroom and the lovely snowy shot really brings home the beautiful location of this property.
