Settle down on the lawn in front of the Mansion, where there's plenty of space, and views across to Tern Bridge.


With a great view

Head along the Mile Walk alongside the River Tern, you'll find plety of spots along here to enjoy a picnic looking aross the river to the Deer Park. It's a great place to wildlife watch as well, look out for dragonflies, ducks, swans, birds, and deer.

A peaceful spot

The Walled Garden is a great get awato and relax, with the Bee Lawn being a perfect place to lay out your picnic blanket. There are lots of benches in the orchard and space for setting up blankets. If you want somewhere more secluded, you’ll have to get your walking boots on first to head up into the woodland. 

Away from the rain

We can’t always promise sunshine, so if the weather takes a turn for the worse, you can shelter under the Colonnades outside the Mansion or find a sheltered spot in the woodland.
