Have cloth, will picnic

The equation has been simple so far: Picnic + African inspiration = Toghal picnic cloth. Having decided what kind of African fabric currently inspires you, , you now have to decide where to go for a picnic. Here are some suggestions for new picnic spots to explore around the UK.

Toghal Picnic Cloth

Lake picnic

Puck’s Glen is inspired by Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s dream. Lots of ferns and moss, with chances of fairy viewing rather more limited. Loch Lomond is close by.

Island picnic

Brownsea Island is in the middle of Poole Harbour, and offers sea views and multi-squirrelled locations. You may wish for a bit of cushioned padding at some point in the journey…?

Remote picnic

How about a spot that makes you feel you are in the middle of nowhere? And a good place to find yellow-flowered gorse and spot ravens? Bodmin Moor in Cornwall fits the bill.

Urban picnic

If you don’t have time to go too far, but fancy mixing culture with a picnic, try Somerset House for an urban picnic, and watch the fountains while you eat.

Golden sands, cliff top, and frequently awarded the best picnic spot in the UK – Barafundle Beach in Pembrokeshire.
