Head to the onsite Stables cafe for some post exercise refreshments. The cafe offers self-service style dining with a menu focused on using Estate meats and harvest where possible and home grown, home made, seasonal produce.

The expansive park is ideal for a dog walk. There are off lead area but please keep your dog under control because of the resident deer.

Just to the north of the park you will find the lovely Rostherne Mere. The pretty mere is a nice place to extend your outing with a picturesque natural lake in peaceful surroundings. The area is also a designated nature reserve where you can look out for a variety of wildfowl on the water. The mere is located less than a mile north of Tatton Hall so easily reached on foot or by bike from the park.
