Great outdoors

Summer picnics

Enjoy food in the open air

Enjoy food in the open air

With the sun shining there's no better time to dig out your blanket, dust off your basket and head outdoors for a picnic.

We've chosen just a few of our favourite special places for a spot of al fresco dining.

Summer colour

Summer sees our gardens at their loveliest so why not explore and soak up the sights and smells of the season?

Summer walks

Clear skies and long days make the summer an ideal season to pull on your boots and take to the trails.

The fields teem with wildlife and flowers so take the time to seek out some unique views and special spots in the sunshine.

Get cycling

Fancy exploring some of the best that spring has to offer on two wheels?

You can hire bikes at Clumber Park where you can even try out tandem cycling and follow one of their many routes, or simply head out on your own two wheels to explore more of the places we care for.

Dog Walks

The perfect place to have fun with your dog

We welcome dogs at many places we look after.

Our houses, and some gardens, are only for humans, but there are acres of outdoors spaces where you can enjoy walk with your dog.
