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!

Tree Top Junior
A fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate three loops of crossings and finish on a high with two awesome Zip Wires. Grizedale is the only Junior Adventure in our family tree that showcases a tiered course with a “Lobster Pot” change of height crossing!

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Wear sensible clothes for adventure
Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip off shoes, open toes or heels.
Gloves are a good idea. Bring a pair or buy them at the cabin on the day.
forestry commission parking is up to £7 per day, bring some change
Are you an innie or and outie?
No, we're not talking about belly buttons.
That would be rather odd. It would be a challenge for us to scribe, and difficult for you to stomach - cue groans.
We're talking about indoors vs the great outdoors. As you know we're big fans of the latter and there's SO much to do.
Now's a great time of year to go exploring and experience new things, and whilst it's fresh outside, that's never stopped you lot. Right?
