1. Leave the car park and when facing the lake, turn left. Head on this path through the kissing gates. Pass through the woodland and continue on this path for some time.
2. The walk itself is up to 3.5 miles, so you can continue on to National Trust Wray Castle. Obviously, you can cut the walk short at any point, to return on the original path.
