Visit Crummock Water

Crummock Water is a lake in the western part of the Lake District, a little to the north-west of Buttermere and south-east of Loweswater.

The lake is two and a half miles long and three quarters of a mile across, and runs broadly north to south with the Mellbreak mountain to the west and Grassmoor to the east standing high above the two shorelines as picturesque backdrop, making this a very scenic destination.

Because of its location and access Crummock Water is less visited than some of the more 'popular' lakes, and facilities are more restricted - boat hire is available - but its wild nature should ensure it features high on your itinerary.

The best known landmark in the region is the waterfall called Scale Force. Found to the south of Crummock Water, with a height of 50 metres it is the highest waterfall in the Lake District.
