Buttermere is a lake in the English Lake District in North West England. The adjacent village of Buttermere takes its name from the lake. Historically in Cumberland, the lake is now within the county of Cumbria. It is owned by the National Trust, forming part of their Buttermere and Ennerdale property.

Buttermere, the lake, shares its valley setting with Crummock Water. They were once a single lake, but are now separated by a narrow strip of meadowland. After the last ice age, sediment deposited from Millbeck created the division. The lakes name may be from the Norse Buthar, a farm family of the 9th century who lived here.
