Starting Point Information Centre
Car park, Gatesgarth Farm, Buttermere

This is an incredibly popular parking spot that fills up very early in the day. If you arrive here to find it full, simply continue towards Honister Pass where there is usually spaces available on the couple of small car parks found along here.

I think this car park is actually owned by Gatesgarth Farm. There is a full day charge but every time I come here the price is different.
More often than not you've find a van here selling refreshments.
