The basics

Crummock Water is not exactly off the beaten path, although it is less visited than neighboring Buttermere Lake, making it an appealing option for those who want a quieter walking or swimming spot. If you’re tight on time, visit the lake as part of a guided highlights tour of the Lake District; day tours typically include a photo stop at Crummock Water and at other regional highlights such as Rydal Water, the village of Grasmere, and Castlerigg Stone Circle.

For travelers with more time to spare, there are plenty of ways to fill it at Crummock Water. Visit Rannerdale Knotts, the supposed site of a battle between the English and the Normans; take a walk along the lakeshore path, which runs along the western lake edge; or go for a swim—the shingle beach at the north shore near Lanthwaite Wood s a popular spot.

Walking at Crummock Water

Walking options abound at Crummock Water. For a short stroll with rewarding views, follow the path from Lanthwaite Wood parking lot, which cuts through the woods to the north shore of the lake. A more ambitious route is the 9-mile (14.5-kilometer) loop around the lake’s edge, during which you’ll encounter boggy, steep, and rocky terrain. Although most of this route is off-road, part of it requires you to walk along the B5289 road. If you park in Buttermere, you can follow a trail up to the nearby Scale Force, a 170-foot (51.8-meter) waterfall tucked away in a narrow gorge.
