Buttermere village is tiny – a few houses, couple of pubs and tea rooms as well as the church where Alfred Wainwright is buried.
I had done the walk around the walk on a very hot July morning and were ready for a drink and something to eat.
The Croft House Farm Cafe was a very welcome place to recharge! It is a long low building with seating inside and out. There is counter service. This can be quite slow if busy as staff were making sandwiches to order and also carried trays to a table for you.
The chocolate cake was excellent, a good size piece and very cheap compared with elsewhere. There was a good range of locally made ice cream too!
