Walking and Rambling in and around Buttermere

Haystacks, forever associated with Alfred Wainwright, forms part of the classic High Stile ridge walk starting straight from the hostel. Haystacks is just one of the famous fells easily reached from Buttermere and Great Gable is great walking for the more experienced with 360 degree views over the lakes. A stroll around Buttermere is great for little legs and those who want a more gentle walk, while still being in the valley of some of the area's most stunning mountains.
