Eating & shopping

Lunch on the lawn from our catering pavilion

Newark Park view from the terrace

Newark Park view from the terrace

This year we opened our new catering pavilion, offering a choice of light lunches, refreshments and snacks. The lunch options include soup of the day, a range of sandwiches and a choice of paninis.

There is no seating inside the pavilion, but on a sunny day there is nothing nicer then enjoying your lunch on the lawn. Seats, tables and a special view are all provided.

And if the weather is a bit too wet or chilly to have your lunch on the tables outside, then do join us in the Tudor sitting room in Newark House and enjoy your refreshments in front of the fire.

Picnic in the park

Immersed in an unspoilt landscape, Newark is perfect for picnics. 

Our favourite sunny picnic spot is on the banks of the lakeside garden.

If you'd like to go off the beaten track just ask for a map.

Retail therapy

Recycled woold rugs for sale at National Trust shops

Pick up a memento of your visit or a special gift, such as our jigsaw puzzles and comfy rugs.

Browse the shelves in our second-hand book shop

Make sure to visit our second hand book room on the top floor of Newark House. Browse the shelves and then make yourself comfortable on the sofas before deciding which books to take home.

There are also DVDs and children's books (and if they have finished their books they can try one of the jigsaws or choose one of the colouring sheets).

Donations of second hand books and DVDs to help keep our shelves stocked are always welcome.
