This was a total surprise...an absolute jewel not to be missed. We went on a perfect day, but would be interesting in rain or shine. And the restaurant looked wonderful.

I have wanted to visit in May for years to see the Handkerchief Tree and I wasn't disappointed, it really is fabulous. My husband who is not a garden/arboretum person spent all 4 hours with me and took lots of photographs which is testament to how beautiful it all is. Well worth a visit.

We arrived at the Batsford Arboretum & Falcon centre intending to have a cup of tea and a 'quick' look round. We ended up staying all day. The arboretum was excellent, really well planned and designed. We were able to hire a mobility scooter for my dad which was great as it is rare to be able to enjoy places... More

Very relaxing. Try taking the footpath to the Arboretum from Moreton-in-Marsh town Centre, a 20-30 minute walk.

Very dog friendly, as is the whole of the cotswolds, shame we left the dog behind! Fantastic views, interesting gift shop, not cheap though. Good cafe, obviously popular for lunch.

This is a really good place for a few hours walking round among lovely trees and plants. Plenty of places to sit and take in the stunning views. The garden centre is very good as well although the cafe is rather expensive (the only downside really). It costs £7 for adults to get in the arboretum but you can spend... More

We spent a relaxing afternoon here during a couple of days in the Cotwolds. Excellent amenities and beautiful trees, shrubs, plants and sculptures in a quiet woodland setting. If you like woodland this medium-sized arboretum is well worth a visit and the entrance fee. A welcome cup of tea and a cake rounded off a lovely afternoon.

Beware the lunch hour at high season, because it can get very busy. But we ate good hearty food and the manager was happy to find us a place when we needed to seat 4 amidst a sea of only 2-tops available. The walk through the big tree and fluffy hydrangeas was a welcome break, very civilized and low key.... More
