We visited this serene Arboretum during the late daffodil blooming - but also saw an amazing array of magnolias and ornamental cherry-blossom trees of many varieties. This is not a vast arboretum, the winding paths have many benches where you can rest and enjoy the beautiful vistas of the surrounding countryside- so one does not feel overwhelmed. The various walks... More

If your disability runs to some sort of buggy, you should be OK. If, however, you have a walking difficulty, then be aware that disabled parking is badly placed. There are in fact two better bays but these seem to be reserved for folk buying plants. Either that or signposts are misleading. Difficulty is that there is a long sloping... More

We went on a warm spring day and everything was beautiful. There's so much to look at even if like me you thought you weren't that interested in trees. The only down side was the cafe, it lacks something.

A lovely place to walk around on a nice spring day. The restaurant has a good choice of lunches and excellent cakes for afternoon tea. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. It's worth going again to see different seasons.

Also wonderful pieces of art hidden around the gardens, then to end your visit a trip to the Café and shops, great range of plants to... More

We picked a glorious afternoon in May to visit Batsford and take in the beautiful magnolias and cherry tree blossom. It was surprisingly quiet for a Sunday and we loved the peaceful atmosphere. We intend to make several return visits as we're keen to see how the arboretum transforms with the changing seasons.

Visited in may on a sunny warm day. Enjoyed a great two hours walk in the garden. This a wonderful way to shed the stress and recharge energy. The experience is worth every single penny.

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.
