The Wild Trail at Sizergh Castle in the Lake District is a total ‘find’. A wild play trail sprawled over around 1.5 miles of beautiful forest within the grounds of Sizergh Castle.
This trail promises the kids (and adults too) an exciting and challenging set of obstacles and clues to follow.
Fences to scramble up and over.
Tunnels to crawl and squeeze through… complete with a wussy parent route for those parents not up for crawling and squeezing through muddy tunnels.
Rocks to scramble down.
Stepping stones to work your way across.
Tree trunks to balance on.
And a brilliant rope swing to play on.
The Wild Trail gives kids the chance to play in the forest amongst the wildlife and you’ll see plenty about! The kids get back to nature, challenging themselves and you to complete the obstacles and having a brilliant time doing so.
Expect to get muddy and definitely wet if it’s a rainy damp day. But it won’t interfere with the fun. We had a great time, proper belly laughs and worked up an appetite for picnic lunch.
When you’ve completed the wild play trail there’s plenty more to see and do at Sizergh Castle.
Explore the historic castle and soak up some history.
Discover a little pond life in one of the many garden ponds which are just bursting with frog spawn, fish and water insects.
And make your way to the secret gardens for a little hide and seek.
It’s easy to spend the day at Sizergh Castle. Plenty of beautiful picnic areas, estate walks, learn about the bee keeping and chickens over in the kitchen gardens. Or just relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.
You can also tick of loads of the National Trust 50 Things to do before you’re 11 3/4.
