I had looked this up before coming to the Cotswolds as I wanted dog friendly places to visit. It was a glorious day and we arrived quite early. Dogs are allowed on leads so we took our 2 for a walk prior to going in. When we did go in we were treated to a spectacular array of tree with... More

Handsome arboretum with good paths and views. Fairly easy to follow trail with quiz for kids, which took about an hour (lolly prize upon completion). Garden centre attached (which we didn't really use) and Cotswold Bird Of Prey Centre (or something like that) next door, which is worth a visit too (get 10% off entrance fee if you've been to...

We visited in October, the colours are fantastic. A nice walk and so many trees in their magnificent fall colours. Cosy cafe, well stocked garden shop and plenty of parking makes this a great day out Good value for money.

Going in October meant we saw all the Autumn colours especially the red Acers. We had a printed walking guide which was helpful. There was also a shop, busy restaurant and garden centre. Parking was ample as they use the fields when it is busy.

This place has been on my must see list for a few years since tracing my paternal family history and discovering that my uncle was a footman and my aunt a parlourmaid on the Batsford Estate. Although the house is not open to the public you can still get a good view of it from the footpath as you wander... More

Autumn colour in the Cotswolds seems less resplendent than usual this year, but Batsford Arboretum is one of the best places to see what there is. Huge collection of trees in arelatively small space, well arranged and with some great views of the Cotswold hills. Paths are steep, but the Tramper mobility buggies available (for £2.50 for a month's membership... More

Great for autumn colour, large array of Acer, Maple and Sycamore mixed in with other deciduous and a good sprinkling of evergreens, all gives very colourful displays. Well maintained paths, all terrain mobility hire, stuff for kids, good café & shop. Lots of the trees available in the garden centre even Ginkgo as well as all the Acer.

Batsford Arboreetum is set in 53 Acres of absolutely beautiful woodland with stunning views over the Vale, the Manor House looks fantastic with the backdrop. There is a small garden centre that is very well looked after, complete this package with a charming restaurant and you will have a day out to remember. ... Bring your camera!

We called in to Batsford Arboretum on Saturday 18 October 2014 whilst on our way to a family event in Cheltenham. It was easy to find, easy to park and worth a visit. The facilities were very good and the trees in the autumn full of colour and interest. There were many interesting things to look and, generally the signage,... More
