Great gift shop and restaurant on site . The arboretum is beautiful, but we were disappointed that the plants were not labeled.

Built on steep slopes with delightful views across the countryside ,the Arboretum is very well - stocked with a variety of trees and plants . Streams and waterfalls trickle down the hillside into pools with carefully placed benches to admire the settings .Arriving at 10 am on a spring morning ensures the place is fairly peaceful. The cafe is lovely... More

Nice walk through a wide variety of trees, not much else for the admission cost ( £7-00 each). Probably wouldn't return. They should bring the cost down as it's a bit off putting as we didn't go the last three years when we arrived due to high entry fee. Garden Centre is okay though.

The ticket price was a little high, but the weather was good and it was a good mornings walk through lovely wooded areas. The park is dog friendly as is the garden centre attached and café. The people in the garden centre were very friendly, so must be used to all us tourists on holiday, they even held my dig... More

Visited on a fine, sunny day when the "pocket handkerchief" tree was in bloom. Although the blooms were past their best, and the staff said that it hadn't been a good year for the blooms, they were still spectacular. There are also other fine attractions, many of which are signposted. Good Cotswold views and splendid view of nearby country house.... More

Batsford Arboretum is a fancy label, in my estimation, for little more than what qualifies as a fairly common public park on the basis of its overall quality. One walks waiting for it all to begin, and gradually realizes this "ain't happenin". Oh look, there's a tree. In its defense, we went in early April, clearly a less fertile time... More

A fantastic selection of trees from around the world to wander amongst. The viewpoints across the Cotswolds are lovely and the benches give you lots of opportunities to rest and enjoy the birdsong and wind in the trees and bamboos. Some slopes in the paths so take your trainers. The views of Batsford House are wonderful and the church is... More
