Lakeside Picnics

Join us for a summer’s picnic
here on the beautiful Priory Farm Estate.

More than ever, we are all keen to reconnect with our family and friends – indulging in delicious food and drink in the great outdoors. After a leisurely walk from our barn through the beautiful meadows here on the Priory Farm Estate, we’ll guide you to a beautiful spot for a picnic feast.

 

Prepared by our team from the finest locally and seasonally inspired produce, your picnic hamper will include a selection of sweet and savoury delights for you to share with your group, along with a couple of Folkington’s Presse drinks.

 

Keen to join us as a family?


Children are most welcome to join us on our Lakeside Picnics. 
We appreciate that our picnics may not be to every child’s tastes, therefore parents are welcome to bring food for the little ones. We kindly ask for a contribution of £2.50 per child to attend – think of it as corkage for children! 

 

Once your picnics have been served, you are free to spend a relaxing few hours with us in our tranquil setting, and when it is time to head home stroll down the hill back to the car park.
