Eating in the outdoors

Children enjoying a picnic at Lanhydrock

Our friendly cafes and restaurants have fantastic meals, light bites and snacks if you're peckish, but if you just want to get away from it all and enjoy your lunch outdoors then pick up a sandwich or Tracker pack or bring your own hamper filled with goodies and check out our picnic spots.

A family favourite

There are picnic tables on the parkland not far from the gatehouse, by the formal garden wall, which are perfect for eating your packed lunch at. There's plenty of space nearby for playing games and running around if you finish eating at different times. You’ll be in easy reach of the garden and house when you're ready to explore further and the courtyard toilets are close by too.

Hampers too heavy to carry?

If you don’t want to walk far then there's a picnic area near the car park - just down from the Park Cafe as you walk towards the reception building. The adventure playground is nearby, so this is a great spot if you're eating with children with small appetites but a hunger for fun.

Space for running around

If you don't need a table but do want to have fun playing games then make your way further onto the parkland, where there's plenty of open space to throw a ball,  make goal posts with jumpers, spread out your picnic rug and while away the afternoon.

Protect our parkland

We hope you enjoy your picnic here but ask please help us keep Lanhydrock lovely by taking away any rubbish. Thank you.
