Places for picnics at Tyntesfield

Picnics are welcome anywhere on the Tyntesfield estate (apart from fields with livestock in them). Here are some of our favourite spots.

Lie on the lawn

The lawns of Tyntesfield's formal gardens are perfect for picnics; you can choose to sit in the sun, or shelter in the shade of one of the trees.

Our favourite spot is on the bank above the Croquet Lawn. There you can catch the sun and enjoy the views across the valley.

Down by the orchard

At the bottom of the estate, by the Kitchen Garden, Orangery and Orchard, is the Pavilion cafe - the perfect place to pick up a sandwich or a slice of cake.

At the front of the cafe is a family-friendly space with tables and chairs and the Orchard play area.

Behind the cafe is a quiet lawn with picnic benches and space for blankets.
