We planned a family get together meeting at Batsford. One of our party needed a wheelchair and another had diet needs, we contacted the staff at Batsford and they could not have been more helpful, a great service and much appreciated. Lunch in the Cafe was very good and the walk round the Arboretum both enjoyable and educational. Some of... More

This is a lovely place to visit any time of the year. Very reasonable admission. Beautiful peaceful walks with objects to spot. Dogs on leads welcome everywhere including shop and plant centre. Very nice cafe and area outside if you have a dog. Plenty of shade in car-park for Falconry Centre next door if you don't want to take your... More

Went there for lunch with friends as we have often done before. Not disappointed. Very friendly and helpful staff who quickly served up our requests with a smile. It was a pleasure to eat here and we will continue to do so when in the area.

A nice small nursery and gift shop with a large dining area serving very good food, perhaps a little on the pricey side. We have not ventured into the arboretum as yet.

A nicely laid out arboretum with plenty of seats, if possible try and get to position O on the plan and seat on the carved out log and look out at the wonderful views to the south. A good selection of different trees form all parts of the world made it an interesting visit. Well maitained footways throughout made for... More

Had a great time at Batsford Arboretum, took our 2 dogs, it was a peaceful and relaxing walk. Took us about 2hours to walk around. The map was a good guide and we circled a few paths to continue to the next area of interest. We had a drink and a slice of cake each, but do be aware that... More

The visit to the arboretum was enjoyable in the main. Yes, there are lots of fine trees and shrubs featured throughout this lovely arboretum, with pathways which are easy to handle with some inclines. I'm not sure that some of the bark pathways would be easily accessible with children's buggies, particularly in wet conditions. You are given a map with... More

We decided to visit Batsford as it is dog friendly. We took my mom, who is sometimes unsteady on her feet, and our 2 dogs and she was ok walking around as there are level paths. The gardens and garden centre are pleasant and took us around 3 hours to walk around. The highlight of our visit was seeing the... More
