One walk will definitely be high and long, however should you want to do you own thing the lake shore walk is very easy.

Buttermere is one of the most beautiful spots in the Lake District. The tiny village sits between two stunning lakes and is surrounded by an incredible range of high fells. There are walks for all abilities - from an easy two hour flat walk around the lake, to an classic ridge walk including Red Pike, High Style and High Crag. 

The camp site is small and over undulating ground, with some pitches by the river, and all with stunning views

We will be camping withing easy walking distance of two lakes so you may be tempted to try wild swimming or SUP. Please be aware, this is NOT a watersports event and any lake activities must be at your own risk and aren't covered by ODL.

The village has a pub and two cafes so is well served for refreshments.

Please don't bring very large tents, and try to car share where possible, as parking is limited. 

The site allows VW size vans (which are parked in a separate areas) but not larger motor homes as access and space does not allow. The site is accessible by bus from Keswick.

Music - is not permitted on this event.

Showers are coin-in-slot (50p for 5 mins). Change is avalable from the cafe if you forget to bring some.

Dogs: The site allows dogs at no additional cost, but sheep are everywhere in the Lakes so must be under close control at all times.
