What’s on this weekend: your weekly inspiration for dog-friendly activities in the local area.
The dramatic parkland of Stoner is set in a valley within the Chiltern Hills. The rolling green slopes fringed with centuries-old beech and ash trees make for a beautiful day in the Oxfordshire countryside. While you’re there, be sure to find the ancient stone-circles formed at the end of the last Ice-Age. Dogs are welcomed in the parkland, although be sure to keep them on a lead around the fallow deer.
For children, the Wonder Woods can provide hours of fun. Little ones can play with sand and water pumps or in the playhouse, while older children can climb the 9m Pyramid tower, explore the tree house, and take on the 50m zip-wire.
Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the formal gardens, Wonder Woods, or inside Stonor House and the Pantry.
This Sunday (19th August) you can also see the Thames Valley Rolls Royce Club will be at Stonor Park for their Summer Picnic. The cars will be on display with the beautiful backdrop of Stonor House. The gardens and grounds will be open all day, and the House and Chapel will be open from 1.30pm.

|Child (2-15 inclusive)||£5.50|

|Family (2 Adults, 2 Children)||£20.50|
