Not only celebrating the re-opening to customers this August – the Gardener’s Cottage Tea Room at Tatton Park has packaged everything that we love about alfresco dining into a delicious, freshly made, ready–to-go picnic, featuring their classic Head Gardener’s sandwiches, cakes and scones. Host a fun and stress free summer picnic at Tatton Park with your nearest and dearest, available to pre-order now online, for collections from Friday 21st August.

The centrepiece to your day out

The Head Gardener’s picnic for two (or one for smaller appetites!) showcases the best of local and estate produce. Fill your picnic rug with delightfully light sandwiches, mini tarts made with Tatton’s Walled Kitchen Garden produce and local Cheshire cheese, zingy mini lemon drizzle cakes and Gardener’s Cottage signature scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, perfectly paired with a choice of either Victorian Lemonade or Ginger Beer.

A picnic for two with a view 

Escape with your picnic to Tatton’s picturesque Parkland where you’ll have 1,000 acres to choose your perfect picnicking spot. Your picnic comes with a handy parkland map of ‘Tatton’s Tremendous Views’ – which you can easily get to on foot or by car. Sit back, feel the grass between your toes and delight in your picnic whilst looking out across Tatton’s stunning Mere’s.

Grab your picnic rugs!
