Hotels in Buttermere
This quiet, rural hamlet is surrounded by picture-perfect rolling hills and winding country lanes, and is just a few kilometres from Walbury Hill, the highest hill in Southeast England. Although there are no Buttermere hotels, there are plenty of fantastic accommodation establishments in the vicinity.
Buttermere is overlooked by the historic Church of St. James, which has stood over the settlement for well over 700 years and is one of the smallest churches in Southeast England. In the 1840s, Robert Jewell Withers, the eminent London architect, was commissioned to redesign the church after it had fallen into serious decay following years of neglect.
