Harcourt Arboretum is an outstation of the Oxford University Botanic Garden. It covers 130 acres and contains some very beautiful trees, shady woods to walk in, a lake, and plenty of open space. It is an excellent place for a picnic, especially with children – plenty of thickets for dens and for hiding in. There are also peacocks that are tame enough to take an interest in the food you have spread out on your rug…

I’ve spent many a happy hour here RH, it’s a lovely place.
…and if it’s too cold / wet for a picnic, there are some nice pubs to visit after a healthy walk round -“thirst after righteousness”, as they say. RH
