I live fairly locally to this place, am a National Trust member and have been here several times in recent years. Although I appreciate other reviewers' concerns about apparently high entrance fees for non-members, lack of comprehensive café/restaurant facilities, and difficulties in identifying tree types because they don't all have labels on them, they should remember that this place doesn't...

Winkworth arboretum is a wonderful place to go for a stroll in all seasons. A huge variety of trees displayed on and through a valley with great views and a lake to hold ones attention. The cafe does a great bacon butty and it is a great example of how the National trust holds beautiful places for the use of... More

Over 50 years since last visit when it was open to anyone. Now a National Trust property with all the benefits such as toilets and café. Trees at this time of year absolutely wonderful with many colours - would have been nice if they had been labelled. Although quite a lot of people around (half term) did not seem crowded.... More

It was our first visit to Winkworth and, although a lovely setting especially near the lake, it was let down by it's visitor facilities. Having the tea shop near the car park outside the arboretum and the toilets inside the arboretum meant having to go in, then out, then in again as it was lunchtime when we arrived after quite...

First visit to this arboretum on a warm sunny October Tuesday. Busy near the entrance as half term week and no indication that there was a member of staff tucked away around the corner past the main ticket queue that NT members could go straight to to have their cards scanned. Lovely setting and good range of different walks but... More

I came across this gem by accident. The different colours of the leaves and the diversity of trees were really amazing. Well worth a visit. The only downside was the cafe, the food was really good, but expensive as well. The cafe staff were rushed off their feet, but really pleasant at the same time.

Stunning views with lovely rambling paths and "Fairy Glens" walk as little or as long as you like. Some of the walks are a bit challenging and steep, but taken slowly, do-able. In wet weather, best to ware your wellies.

Our first visit to this NT location, and can say we will be returning. The detailed map giving the walking routes was clear and easy to read. Staff at the centre very helpful and gave us a nice welcome. The small cafe at the centre looked homely but unfortunately we didn't stay due to the high number of visitors at... More

A very popular place to see autumn colours. The site is quite hilly so be warned but the effort is well worth it.
