Mountain Goat bus in the Lake District

Let somebody else do the driving and relax as you travel by bus.

Public bus

Wray Castle is serviced by a bus route offering journeys from Windermere and Coniston.
 
This is run by Stagecoach and drops you half a mile from the entrance, then you can walk, off-road, to the castle. You’ll need to get the 505 bus: Kendal to Coniston route. Check timetables and routes at Stagecoach

As part of the great Cross Lakes Route, you can also travel on the Mountain Goat minibus. The nearest drop-off for the castle is in Hawkshead village, . 
 
This route gives you chance to leave the car behind and travel through the heart of Beatrix Potter country to some of hers and now your favourite places! See details and timetable on the PDF below.
