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!

This was our third visit and the arboretum never fails to be a lovely place at any time of year. Very dog friendly with dogs allowed on the site on leads. The restaurant provides a welcome hot drink and sandwiches as well as hot cooked snacks/meals. RHS members can get in free as it is affiliated to the RHS which... More

We live locally and have a season ticket for the arboretum. This has proved to be excellent value, enabling us to visit throughout the year, enjoying all four seasons. A beautiful, relaxing place with an ever changing array of foliage and blossoms. We walk our dog there and always enjoy popping into the cafe afterwards.

We enjoyed our visit very much. There were lots of early flowers out, including snowdrops, daffodils and hellebores. As we walked, we also caught the scent of flowering box and enjoyed the statues and other landscape features. There is an excellent garden centre and garden shop. Our only complaint are the prices in the cafe. £2.25p for a pot of... More

We had a lovely couple of hours walking around the arboretum. We were lucky with the weather as even in February the sun was shining really bright which made the walk not as cold as it could have been. You get given a map on entry with little landmarks on it so you can look out for them as you... More

On a miserable cold gloomy February day we had a lovely walk. The church is beautiful. A very dog friendly place, down to us all being allowed in the cafe. We plan to go back in the summer. Regarding comment about lack of children activities - well maybe a garden isn't supposed to be Disney Land, just occasionally a space... More
