Out & About
Visitors can spend an entire day at Wray and it won’t be the traditional National Trust house you may be expecting. There is something here for everyone and it is a good base for a great day out. Perhaps linked with a walk down the lakeshore as well. There are also the extensive grounds to explore and there is a café with an amazing view, run by a National Trust tenant food producer.
You can wander the Castle’s elaborate hall, rooms with towers, turrets and arrow slots. The castle building room has new foam blocks and there is lots of dressing up, a countryside room, plus the newest addition to the castle, the Peter Rabbit Adventure.
This stunning location in Grizedale Forest is the full monty of adventure with FIVE unrivalled experiences. Adrenaline junkies should head to the Treetop Challenge or Zip Trekking Adventure if seriously high-level tree-top crossings and incredible zip wire flights get your pulse quickening. There’s Treetop Adventure+ for older kids and teenagers and Treetop Adventure for the young would-be explorers. You can also hop on a Segway if you want to see the very best of the Lake District, with breath-taking views of Coniston Lake and mountains.
