National Trust Borrowdale and Buttermere Valleys

Borrowdale and Buttermere Valley are some of the most popular areas to visit in the lake district and it really isn't hard to see why. Ideally located near Keswick, they are the ideal setting for a wide range of activities from walking, hiking, paddling, cycling and climbing to simply sitting on a bench and taking in the view. With such breath taking vistas, you might also be tempted to bring a notebook or canvas and create your own work of art as many famous artists have done before. With many paths to choose from which cater to a wide range of abilities, come and make Borrowdale or Buttermere the backdrop to your next day out with the entire family.

Take a stroll down to Friar's Crag, let the kids run wild though the woods or hold your own stone-skimming competition on the beach at Strandshag Bay - it's all right on the doorstep.

Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/borrowdale and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/buttermere-valley for more information about how we care for this landscape, the waymarked walks you can follow and the events we'd love to see you at.

All funds collected from parking fees go towards keeping the lakes accessible and safe for all as well as ensuring that our precious landscape and all spcies who call it home continue to thrive for generations to come.

Borrowdale and Buttermere Valley are some of the most popular areas to visit in the lake district and it really isn't hard to see why. Ideally located near Keswick, they are the ideal setting for a wide range of activities from walking, hiking, paddling, cycling and climbing to simply sitting on a bench and taking in the view. With such breath taking vistas, you might also be tempted to bring a notebook or canvas and create your own work of art as many famous artists have done before. With many paths to choose from which cater to a wide range of abilities, come and make Borrowdale or Buttermere the backdrop to your next day out with the entire family.

Take a stroll down to Friar's Crag, let the kids run wild though the woods or hold your own stone-skimming competition on the beach at Strandshag Bay - it's all right on the doorstep.

Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/borrowdale and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/buttermere-valley for more information about how we care for this landscape, the waymarked walks you can follow and the events we'd love to see you at.
