Picnics at Nuffield Place

There's plenty of peaceful spots to enjoy a picnic in the grounds of Nuffield Place.

Although our tearoom is now closed, you're very welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden and grounds.

Where to picnic

‚ÄčThe lawn behind the house is an ideal, spacious place to lounge on with the whole family.

If you're feeling in the mood for more of an adventurous spot for your picnic, the meadow is a peaceful place to sit amongst the butterflies in the summer months. There are a few benches dotted around, or bring a picnic rug with you to enjoy your alfresco lunch.

The old tennis court next to the house is also a good place to sit, with outdoor furniture.

Pack up some extras for your picnic

Head to the shop if you need an extra rug, or fancy a new basket to carry your picnic in. The shop also has many treats to add to your picnic; if you fancy picking up some bits when you arrive you'll find the shop on the first floor of the house.


Please make sure to take your rubbish home with you.
