Location! Location! Location!
Half the fun of a picnic is the view.
While it might seem like a waste of precious daylight hours, we cannot recommend researching your options enough.
It’s also worth thinking about your attendees.
Young children, elderly parents and those who are less mobile will struggle with a long trek between your car and your picnic site – especially in warm weather.
A look at Google Maps is a quick way of scouting out your general vicinity, or even locations further afield. There is also plenty of information online recommending excellent picnic spots.
Our local South West favourites include Trevone Bay in Cornwall, Fernworthy Reservoir on Dartmoor and Weston Beach on the East Devon coast.
It won’t take much researching to find the ideal picnic spot near you.
