We broke our holiday to stop off and visit the Arboretum. Both of us are dissabled ane we had booked a Scooter each some weeks in advance this service incidently was free. The old Arboretum was spectacular, our only dissapointment was that we were unable to see the labels on the trees from the main footpath where we had to... More

Had a lovely day even with it raining the kids loved it just running free. Car park and entrance all new and lovely and clean. Unfortunately the toilets near the play area were very different and tbh quite revolting. I'll know next time to go back to the main new toilets. Stopped at the cafe which I found overpriced for...

Visited during Treefest which was a bonus as originally it was just a visit included in a coach tour. The events at the festival were so good, as was the music and food, that we did not see as much of the trees as we had planned. It was a bonus afternoon out for us.

We go to the arboretum a couple of times a year. It's one of those rare places that is beautiful whatever the time of year and it's well worth visiting once every season to observe the changing scenery! My only moan would be the shop that has been there for years has changed of late. It has much fewer small... More

We took our 2 grandchildren along to the tree festival. The festival was very well laid out with live demonstrations going on, including chainsaw sculptures and and old traction engine making planks. We took a walk around one area of the arboretum which was all along one level and would give disabled visitors the ability to enjoy the varied species... More

My family and I came to visit Westonbirt Arboretum during our week long holiday in the Cotswolds. We had a dog with us, which limits us to where we can go, so we thought this would be a good place to visit. Our first surprise was the entry cost - it was £8 per adult and, as there was 6... More

We went on saturday and were really suprised. Lots to do for kids and parents alike. Our 4yr old loved the zip wire. The safety checks along with the friendliness of the activity hosts was really pleasing. The music and entertainment was excellent, some wonderful talent showcased. Value for money in great surrounding. Only problem was that we didn't have... More

Enjoyed our recent trip here walking round the woods. Good amenities for children and makes an interesting day for all ages. I suspect it is spectacular in the autumn. Will return then.

The Arboretum is local to us, and we love it! Walks in the extensive woods are a real treat, at any time of year, as the scene constantly changes. The new admission system is a great improvement, and queues are hopefully a thing of the past. The cafe is excellent and our only wish is that bike trails could be... More
