Crummock Water is a lake lying within the Lake District in Cumbria, England situated between Buttermere to the south and Loweswater to the north. The River Cocker starts at the north of the lake, before then heading into Lorton Vale.

The hill of Mellbreak runs the full length of the lake on the western side; as Alfred Wainwright described it ‘no pairing of hill and lake in Lakeland have a closer partnership than these’.

It is under the ownership of the National Trust. Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District, is the feeding source of the lake.
