Picnics in the grounds

The very best way to enjoy a quintessentially British picnic is within our stunning Arboretum at West Lodge Park.

– Andrew Beale, Managing Director

Enjoy your Picnic in the wonderful Beale Arboretum.

Set within 35 acres you will have your own dedicated picnic area which has been specially selected to showcase a different feature of our grounds for your pleasure & relaxation.

Your picnic spot is yours to enjoy for 2 hours and are available from 12.30 with our last picnic being delivered at 4pm.

Once you arrive please call the hotel and member of the team will welcome you and guide you to your dedicated area. Your picnic will then be delivered for you to enjoy. We will pop back and check that everything is okay. You will also have a telephone number for a dedicated porter should you need anything else.

Once finished, all we ask is that you put your used items in the bag provided and notify us that you have finished, we’ll do the rest.

Picnics are for a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 8 and are only bookable a minimum of 72 hours in advance between 1st May & 30th September. To reserve your picnic please contact the hotel reception.
