We missed the best of the autumn colours but still spent a pleasant afternoon here. Lovely walks and plenty of beautiful well labelled trees. Shop, cafe etc were clean and warm. Staff were pleasant and helpful. But we were disappointed in the food. Perhaps it was just not our taste. On a cold day we were hoping for soup but... More

We used to visit this arboretum years ago and returned this autumn and it was like returning to an old friend. It's too late for the best of the autumn colour, but reading their leaflet has made me realise that it is well worth walking around the arboretum, during most months of the year. A walk around the arboretum makes... More

Batsford isn't just trees and plants! It's a sensory overload amongst nature. Walk solo and smile or take the family for an adventure. We love it here:-) I have children aged 6, 8 & 10yrs. It's enjoyable exercise up along the level paths, finding the mini waterfalls and 'the cave'. The big cafe has great food/drink. The gift shop and... More

We were staying in the Moreton in Marsh and walked up here (bit of a trek, there is a path where you can avoid the roads, best to find it). It's an amazing place. Particularly for the huge collection of Japanese-looking trees, with their red leaves in autumn. We walked for hours around the area. The country house at the... More

Rain or shine our Digby has always been welcome in the restaurant. The food is excellent - huge sandwiches and lovely cake. A wonderful walk to and from Moreton.

I can understand why they refer to it this way as it was only a year or so ago that I found out about it and that from a friend who had moved into the county of Gloucestershire! It is situated between Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Hill, both delightful places with Cotswold stone cottages and houses. (Be careful if using SatNav to... More

The Autumn colours here are amazing. In Spring the flowering cherries and magnolias are also superb, it's definitely worth a journey to see them. Facilities are excellent; nice clean loos, very good café and an extensive garden centre. Handy for Moreton-in-Marsh, which is also worth a visit.
