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. The Lake District is a hub of things to do with a vast range of activities to spend the whole day out among the trees. 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!

What should I wear?
We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if it’s raining! You need to make sure you have the correct footwear with closed toe and heel (with flat soles), no sandles or slip-off shoes. Your stomach area will need to be covered and long hair must be tied back.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
