Borrowdale & Buttermere Valleys

The Borrowdale Valley is renowned for some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the Lake District, dominated by a handful of England’s tallest mountains. Quaint villages, stately oak forests and the crystal waters of the River Derwent make this a great spot for exploration. Steel yourself to stand under the precariously balanced Bowder Stone, which looks as if it might topple at any moment, or take in peerless views from the rustic stone arch of Ashness Bridge, itself a much-photographed site.

Nearby Buttermere Valley, with a string of gorgeous lakes, is less-trafficked but provides scenery just as spectacular as more popular areas and includes Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District.
