Stay nearby and enjoy Wray Castle

In the Lake District the National Trust owns and cares for a large number and variety of buildings. Many of these are working farms or private homes but some are let to tenants who run them as Bed and Breakfasts, pubs or hotels. In addition we have Trust holiday cottages and campsites giving everyone the opportunity to stay over in a special place.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay close to Wray Castle, nowhere is closer than the Dower House which is in the grounds; or Near Sawrey (where Beatrix Potter's Hill Top is located) is just a few miles away. See below for links.

You can search for bed and breakfast in scenic locations throughout our area on our national search page.

The Low Wray campsite is a favourite with families and is located very near Wray Castle, just a short walk or cycle gets you here; with things for kids to enjoy whatever the weather that's a great bonus.

With its choice of pitch locations and interesting selection of 'alternative' camping experiences Low Wray is a fantastic campsite on the western shore of Lake Windermere.

If you'd prefer to be among the mountains around Coniston and Langdale then our Hoathwaite and Langdale campsites are a great alternative whilst still only a short drive away. Check out our National Trust Lake District campsite pages for more information.
