F.A.Q's - Low Wray

Here are some of the questions we most frequently get asked about the Low Wray site, and the answers to them. If you have any other questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us.













Is the Tipi Waterproof?


- Yes. The canvas is waterproof they also have a rain catcher attached to the poles at the top of the Tipi if it should rain the rain flows down the poles then collects in the rain catcher and is drained off at the back of the lining. However, even in Summer night times can be cool and you should always bring a good sleeping bag and warm clothing.

Is it cold in the Tipi?


The structure of the Tipi and lining means that Tipis are comfy and warm in winter and offer a cool shelter in the summer. Providing the perfect Lake District camping experience. However even in Summer night times can be cool and you should always bring a good sleeping bag.

Is it suitable for pets?

It is sensible to bring clothing for all weather conditions whatever time of year you book your holiday. There is still plenty to do in the Lake District even if it rains (See: Locations page) so you can still enjoy a fun packed or peaceful holiday whatever Grandmother nature chooses to bless you with.
