This is the valley stretching from Buttermere through Loweswater to Lorton that is steeped in history, incredibly beautiful and almost undiscovered. This is an area loved by William and Dorothy Wordsworth who were born in nearby Cockermouth. There are many other historic connections. See our holiday guide to the Buttermere-Lorton area and holiday attractions for things to do and links to other sites of local interest.

Review our book list for recommendations.

Look out for our picture gallery for pictures of the area.

Our Where to eat guide also gives a range of options for dining out.
