Lovely location, very informative information about the arboretum and labels on trees. The walks were well marked on the map and we enjoyed the variety of planting and the views over Goicestershire.

Well worth spending time at this delightful and interesting attraction comprising woodland walks, shop and restaurant. Plenty of places to walk and enjoy the trees. Lunch was fabulous and of a very high quality - we would happily revisit just for lunch.

Walk around the paths and see a different aspect at very corner, after your walk sit and enjoy a coffee in the restaurant then finish with a walk round the garden centre.
