This National Trust arboretum is just breathtaking. To think it was envisaged and laid out nearly 100 years ago and now to see the fruits of our forefather's labour. It makes the scenes all the more special. Great to visit in all seasons, but at it's best in spring and autumn. There is a route for pushchairs and disabled access... More

We visited in the spring when the bluebells and azaleas were giving a good show. A pasty and drink at the restaurant prepared us for walking the red route which took in most of the main points of interest including the viewing point, bluebell woods, boat house and the azalea bank. It was a varied and very enjoyable walk. My... More

Fantastic time to visit the lovely woodland. We've been here several times, but this was the best visit by far. All the bluebells were carpeting the woodland with an amazing smell with them, wild garlic too. The azalea walk was stunning. Loved our visit.

Beautiful place for a walk with the dog and to observe the vast array of trees. There is also a lovely boat house and lake. The bluebells are now on show it is a great time to visit.

Tried to visit on Bank Holiday Monday but, having queued in traffic, were disappointed to be informed (neither courteously nor apologetically) by an agitated man at the car park that it was full. The problem with numbers we could understand; the attitude of he man we could not and have written to NT about it. However, not wishing to miss... More

I visited on Saturday and took so many photo's of the carpets of bluebells and stunning azaleas. A beautiful place to visit in Spring, stroll around and soak up the views and say "Wow" a lot! I saw wild flowers I hadn't seen since I was a child. I look forward to returning.

Definitely worth a visit at this time of year to see the stunning bluebells and azaleas. There are carpets of blue throughout the woodland areas, and the azalea steps are a must. Even on a dull, cool May morning we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The car park was quite full by... More
