Well worth the travel from Reading. Beautiful gardens wonderful walk. Easy to find as just off main road, loads of parking spaces. Food in the pub is much better than the food in the centre.

Hi Claire, There are various follies in the grounds where you could shelter but nothing specific for picnics.
