A compendium of garden games
Family fun with one of our free garden games. Grab a mallet and play some croquet (deposit required) or have a go at the giant game of snakes and ladders. Test your skills with the hoopla and steady your hand for a game of Jenga.
A wander through the meadow
Enjoy a spring walk around the meadow, a fantastic way to see this unusual house from all angles. There is also a brass rubbing trail around the outside of the meadow for all to enjoy.
The meadow is still teeming with the sights and sounds of nature getting ready for the summer. Take a look at our two nature spotters sheets and see what plants you can find.
An orchard picnic
Have a stroll around this beautiful orchard and collect some windfall apples in autumn. There are also picnic tables where you can enjoy the fresh air as you eat your lunch.
Paws for thought
We are very dog friendly here at A la Ronde, as long as they are on their leads. We offer them a cool drink by the Laundry and also outside the shop. In our shop with have tasty treats for your hungry hounds to enjoy. Your dogs are also welcome in the first part of the tea room and also by the outside seating; they can also enjoy the meadow walk.
The water tower and laundry
Have a look at the water tower and laundry built to provide hot water to the first floor of A la Ronde, the height of Victorian luxury.
