Decided to walk from Moreton in Marsh to Batsford arboretum with our dog Molly as they are very dog friendly. We were not disappointed. The arboretum is beautifully laid out with lovely views. Large garden centre and welcoming cafeteria. Dogs allowed here too. Understandably they are not permitted into the falconry centre. Looking forward to another trip later when different... More

Brilliant displays of hellebores, snowdrops, daffodils etc, greet the visitor, and the whole garden is a delight in spring. The great thing here is the hillside location, which adds so much with the stream, waterfall and rock garden, providing interest and perspective that is missing even in places such as Kew. After a challenging walk, we were thrilled with the... More

We visited Batsford after staying the night in Moreton in Marsh. The arboretum was full of lots of beautiful snowdrops and my absolute favourite spring flowers, daffodils! Follow the guide around and you will find some beautiful 'pieces' (you'll have to go to see what I mean!) scattered around the gardens. Lots of birds high in the trees and a... More

Late February, and a beautifull day in Batsford Arboretum among the snowdrops. Huge swathes of white everywhere particularly along the river banks, and the Witch Hazels in bloom too, made a great morning out rounded off nicely with a good meal and a cuppa in the restaurant.

. . . shrubs and flowers and bulbs. We went expecting to see crocuses, and there were some, but far more snowdrops. Daffodils were also on view. We both enjoyed the design and layout, with lots of sinuous paths tempting you on to the next vista. There is also a modern, airy café and the usual gift shop, cheaper than... More

We wanted to see snowdrops but were impressed by so much more about Batsford. It's hard to pinpoint which part of the arboretum is the most impressive, right now in February we were delighted to see swathes of snowdrops at every turn, but as the year progresses new favourite views will no doubt open up. It was a wonderfully atmospheric... More

We loved every bit of the Arboretum. Specially enjoyed speaking to Roger in the Woodcraft Hut.This was our first visit to the Arboretum and we will certainly return next time we come to the Cotswold. It is amazing the variety of trees and plants. We were lucky to see the grounds covered in snowdrops. Beautiful.

For a wonderful day out to suit all individuals. Perfect picnic place, amazing views from balcony of restaurant/tea rooms, interesting gifts/gardening products in shop, falconry displays and arboretum too. There is a cost for the Arboretum and Falconry but the rest is free to wonder round and spend the day, ample free parking too.

Batsford is always a great place to visit. The sun shone, the snowdrops were brilliant, both in the arboretum and in Batsford village itself. The visit was topped-off with a wonderful lunch of home made cheddar and onion tart with roasted vegetables. We'll be back in the Autumn for the colours!
