• A 20 minute hike (through one of the most beautiful, dramatic forests out there) to the meeting point
• A ride off-road where you’ll be whisked along winding mountain roads up to the training zip

GRIZEDALE

Cumbria

Located to the east of Coniston Water and to the south of Hawkshead lies Grizedale Forest. Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Grizedale offers an unrivalled day out for everyone. Our jewel in the crown features Zip Trekking Adventure - a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs of our Cumbrian hideaway. Please allow plenty of time to get to Go Ape Grizedale. Roads get very busy in the Lakes so we’d advise you to allow some extra time!

My 2 children (13 and 10) and I had a really wonderful day. They were so brave,and I only screamed once!! Unfortunately my friend decided after getting half way up the first ladder that it really wasn't for her,and her son agreed after the first zip wire that he was indeed afraid of heights, even with very gentle encouragement from the lovely goape team, but I was refunded their tickets, so hey ho it's not for everyone. We will be back when it's a bit warmer, it was a bit frosty up in the tree tops. Nb, bedgebury forest was absolutely beautiful.

Everyone is friendly and helpful. The experience was really lovely. My 13 year and old and I had a really good time. Probably good advice to stretch first, before going climbing!
