Enjoy a picnic on the front lawn

Bring along your own picnic and enjoy it on the grassy areas within the wonderful grounds, or on our picnic benches overlooking the house and moat. Our gardens are stunning and and lovely to stroll around after you've been fed.

If you've forgotten your picnic you can pick up some sandwiches and snack boxes from our Barn Restaurant.
