We visited this magnificent Arboretum when the trees were in full bloom. All the trees were easily identified by name tags with the name of the tree rather than by a numerical identification that was used by a similar place. The trees and surrounding areas were magnificent. We visited the restaurant as it was closing but the staff made sure... More

We went there albeit on a rather rainy day but for nearly £8 per adult it is not really family orientated on the pricing front. It consists of a garden centre and cafe and shop thereafter you have to pay to enter the woodland. There are nice views of the home of the Mitford sisters although the house is privately... More

A very warm welcome awaits you at this fascinating little spot. A beautiful place to wander or even bring a picnic. Huge variety of interesting plants and trees. We would happily return if in the area again.

Whilst Spring and Autumn are the obvious seasons to visit the arboretum late summer proved to be very nice. A few of the acers are turning colour and hence look quite beautiful at the moment. The arboretum is pretty big so a good couple of hours are needed to take a casual stroll around it. The restaurant is good with... More

This small but beautifully maintained arboretum has year round appeal. There are several vantage points where stunning view of the Cotswolds can be found. The grand house, home of the famous Mitford Girls, is not open to the public but can be seen through the trees. The family's church can be viewed and is very interesting. There is an obvious...

Fantastic arboretum, great size with loads to see, kept in top notch condition. Really worth a few hours to wander through the grounds and take in all the plants, flowers & trees, plus the good views. There's also a nice cafe & garden centre just to add to the attraction.

First of all - this is a fantastic Arboretum with every tree/plant labelled so you know what you are looking at - so beautiful. However the restaurant is awful...the system of ordering hot food at one end of the counter to the sandwiches being near the check out and then the girl on the check out also serving hot drinks...
