Crummock Water is the middle one of a trio of Western Lakes nestling in the Vale of Lorton. It’s 2 ½ mile length, and 140 feet depth, make it larger than the neighbouring waters of Buttermere and Loweswater.
This is an uncrowded classic walking location, either around the 8 mile perimeter of the lake, or upward to the higher ground of Red Pike, Grasmoor and Melbreak from where there are particularly good views.
Anglers are well catered for in the nearby Buttermere’s village inn, where advice is on hand for those wishing to cast for one or more of the lakes brown trout.
Motorists can reach this stunning setting via Cockermouth, or, from Keswick, over the Honister Pass.
Bus travellers may use the the services of the Ennerdale Rambler from Cockermouth, or the Honister Rambler from Keswick which operates during the summer months.
