Winter is for family walks in beautiful places. There's plenty of puddle-splashing, frost-crunching, stick-swinging, hot-chocolate drinking family fun at our places in Berkshire.

Where there's rain there's puddle-splashing, where there's frost there's a sugar-coated landscape, if it's windy there are leaves to chase. Come and enjoy our places in Oxfordshire with your family whatever the weather and warm up afterwards in our cosy cafés.
