Buttermere is a lake in the north-west of the English Lake District. It is 1¼ miles long (2 km) by ¼ mile (500 m) wide, and is 75 feet (23 m) deep. It has an elevation above sea level of 329 feet (100 m). A place of considerable scenic value, it is situated towards the head of the valley of the river Cocker and is surrounded by fells, notably the High Stile range to the southwest, Robinson to the northeast, Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks to the southeast and Grasmoor to the northwest. The village of Buttermere stands at the northwest end of the lake, and beyond this is Buttermere's twin, Crummock Water. There is a path around the lake which is about 4 ½ miles (7.2 km) long, and at one point runs through a rock tunnel beneath the locality of Hasness. Access is by road, from Cockermouth in the northwest; from Borrowdale via the Honister Pass; or from Braithwaite and the Newlands Valley via Newlands Hause. The lake is owned by the National Trust and is part of the National Trust property called Buttermere and Ennerdale.

Buttermere means "the lake by the dairy pastures".

Mary Robinson (1778-1837), known as the Maid of Buttermere and the subject of Melvyn Bragg's novel of that name, was the daughter of the landlord of the Fish Inn in Buttermere village.
