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. 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!

Tree Top Adventure

Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings; a high ropes course for all the family. Set in a forest of sky-scraping Douglas Firs, Grizedale feels seriously high, mainly due to its vertigo-inducing 19 metre platforms. Our South Lakes adventure features two Zip Wires which fly over the road below!
