The grounds of Wray Castle are all informal so it's a relaxing place to visit with children and dogs (dogs on leads please).
The grounds lead down to rocky inlets on the shoreline and round to the gentler green slopes of High Wray Bay. It's a great place for children to play and use their imagination.
There is a footpath linking the jetty at the boathouse with the bridleway and minor road which runs from Ferry Landing to Wray so access into the adjoining countryside is easy if you want to go further.
Wray Castle has lovely grounds but if you'd like to enjoy them and the surrounding countryside then we have put together a circular trail from the castle and around Blelham Tarn. This lovely low level walk gives great views of the mountains around.
This is a family based series of Eight caches they are all medium sized and will hold swaps and TB’s, the final cache is a Puzzle, you will find the Co-ords for the Puzzle in two of the caches.
The caches are placed on a very interesting walk through rolling woodland leading to places not normally visited, with some of the best Lakeland Views, so take your camera.
They all are easy to find and close to the track, and two caches have the Co-ords for the final Puzzle, do check the inside cover of all the log books! Please record all DNF's and please take care not to damage the vegetation and carefully replace as found.
