Great place to go. Wonderful trees and fantastic for kids. Went with our family including a lively 5 year old. So much to explore. She loved it. and certainly slept well that night. Downside is the restaurant. VERY limited seating and menu, more of a tearoom really.

I hadn't visited this arboretum before and I wasn't disappointed. The varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers and the beautiful soft greens of spring made the whole place look magnificent. I wish I lived nearer and could visit more often. It must look amazing in the autumn too.

Batsford arboretum is an fabulous place to visit. It is well signposted from Moreton-in-March with brown tourist attraction signs. It is however less easy to work out where to go when you get to the car park - but the answer is in towards the garden centre and then the entrance to the arboretum will be obvious. There are a...

My husband bought me membership for Christmas so we tend to pop in and out. We have still not got round the whole grounds. There is always something new to see. The snowdrops this year were stunning. We usually eat in the cafe, the food is good quality and tasty. The garden centre is brilliant and the plants well cared... More

It is a peaceful place to walk around in all seasons. Liked the mix of modern sculpture amongst the trees and shrubs

A 40 minute walk from Moreton-in-Marsh on an easy to follow Monarch´s Way, the approximate route king Charles II took fleeing after defeat. The arboretum has a large gardening centre, tourist shop and restaurant area, the latter comes with a terrace for nice weather. Tickets are 7.20 GBP. When we visited the magnolias as well as cherry trees were blooming,... More

Enjoyed a nice walk around the arboretum, the paths are points of interest are clearly marked out and suitable for all ages and abutted. Food was good and plenty of variety although ques were long at lunch times. At £7.95 each to get in I felt it was a little pricey, compared with similar days. Great place to sit and... More

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
