Bring your lunch

Enjoy a picnic at an extraordinary place

Bring along a picnic to enjoy in the garden or orchard.

There are benches and picnic tables or you can spread a rug on the grass.

We sell drinks and snacks too, just in case you forget anything.

At the right time of year, you can even pick apples off the trees.
