As the sunlight filters through the trees, and the breeze kisses your face, you settle into a plush pile of beautiful cushions and devour another delicious morsel of food. The whimsical, picturesque setting in the rolling hills is the perfect destination for your picnic, after travelling by horse to your own private paradise.
This isn’t Wuthering Heights or a story book though, it’s an experience you can enjoy in the Adelaide Hills thanks to Classic Carriage Drives.
A Vintage Picnic is offered as an optional addition to their 45min Montacute Valley Carriage Ride.
You can enjoy a secluded picnic set on the Montacute reserve surrounded by bushland & Orchards.
The picnic includes your own table set with linen cloth, flowers, serving platters, plates & glasses, serviettes & chilled water, picnic rug & pillows.
It’s an amazing way way to conclude the carriage ride, and it’s been used for so many different occasions – birthdays, family outings, marriage proposals, and just a beautiful day out. Who needs an excuse really…
We actually discovered the Vintage Picnics when we were checking out the amazing kids tea parties Classic Carriage Drives offer – complete with unicorn! Set up in a tipi, guests have 1.5 hours to feed, groom and pamper a Unicorn.
‘Indiana’ the Percheron and ‘Ziggy’ the adorable miniature pony love the attention and interaction with children, and you can have up to three kids (plus adults).
