Where would a scenic run down of the Lake District be without any magnificent views of water? Well, we’re certainly about to take a dive into one of the most beautiful and picturesque places in the area.

The lake is located in Buttermere/Loweswater and it’s simply amazing. Your camera and loved ones are sure to enjoy revelling in the natural wonder of Crummock Water that will take your breath away.


3. Dodd Wood

If you want a wood with a view, then Dodd Wood is the one for you. If you head up and look down you’ll see that the wood is high above the Bassenthwaite Lake, and it really is a beauty to behold.

It's a magical place that you’re sure to want to visit time and time again. Make sure you take your camera too, because you’ll experience some of the best picturesque scenes of your lifetime at Dodd Wood.


4. Holehird Gardens

If you’d love to become absorbed in some beautiful, flowery gardens then you simply must visit the Holehird Gardens on Patterdale Road in Windermere.

The gardens are only open between April and October, but they’re the perfect place to visit if you’re in the area during this time.

Flowers will be blooming, so make sure you explore every area possible for some memorable views that will last a lifetime.


5. Pillar Mountain

It may only be the 11th biggest mountain in the Lakes, but it doesn’t stop Pillar being an amazing place to visit if you’re seeking some incredible nature filled sights.

What we really adore about this place is the fact that the camera just seems to love it. All the luscious greenery mixed in with some brilliant and majestic rocks really does make for something special.
