Went on a walk and picnic here, was very quiet and peaceful. Has a really lovely lake where we saw a heron. May have got attacked by geese but was a great day out...look forward to returning :) Also has a nice seating area at the front with a little cafe.

Amazing for working up to or walking off a Sunday lunch. Scenery wonderful and lots of different paths and routes depending on who you go with. We have been with small children and elderly grandparents - magical !

Go for a walk with family or friends, there are several options for route length and a nice little cafe if you need refreshments. It is very scenic and I would imagine different and different times of year; perhaps a revisit is necessary.

A great place to visit for a peaceful walk with family or friends. The National Trust has owned the arboretum for 60 years and has built up a fantastic collection of more than 1,000 different shrubs and trees, many of them rare.The most impressive displays are in spring, with magnolias, bluebells and azaleas. In autumn, the colour of the foliage... More

A lovely place to stroll around, especially in early Spring for the Bluebells, and Autumn for the changing leaves, but good at any time of the year.

I love this space for getting out for a walk with the kids and the dogs. Watching the seasons change at Winkworth is fun and educational. Staff are always helpful and friendly. Good for picnics or a stop over at the cafe. Their family day in August is fantastic

the arboretum is a lovely place to visit with the family for a peaceful walk or to take advantage of the family fun activity days. When I last visited it needed some more small maintenance jobs doing to make the play area etc safe. Overall really good place to go with the family!

Winkworth is a joy - we went for a nice walk in the Automn and were treated to a feast of colours - both of the trees and of the camelias in flower. There is a ample parking and a busy cafe by the entrance, serving a typical NT range of food. With no house to explore, we spent the... More

Many people in my life have complimented me on my lovely feet and can never quite believe it when I tell them how much and often I like to walk, hike and stroll, because they are in such good condition. I bathe them in hot water daily, I ensure I have a pedicure on a fortnightly basis and my charming... More
