We arrived around 11am on a Sunday, plenty of parking, best to follow the signs for Visitors Parking at the top of the hill as it takes you to the entrance of the garden centre and arboretum. Plenty of hard standing parking. The paths around the arboretum are good and you get a map to guide you round, which also... More

Walked here from Morton in the marsh. Just a very enjoyable stroll along a country lane. Spent a few hours at the arboretum wandering the paths of this gorgeous garden. Took some lovely photos and marvelled at the view from the top corner, overlooking an expanse of lower cotwolds countryside. They had a lovely garden centre, gifts and coffee shop,... More

We went to an early morning walk in the Arboretum at 4AM with one of the guides to listen to the birds wake up. The guide took his time to try to explain which bird was which as they sang. It was quite difficult as once a few got round to chirping I was unsure which he was talking about.... More

We picked up picnic supplies in Stow on the wold and took a cab over to the Park. It was a special place to spend an afternoon. We enjoyed the well kept and diverse gardens. We found an open lawn where we were able to layout a picnic and soak in the sun. A great afternoon.

Well worth a visit in autumn - make sure to take your camera! A lovely day out - can easily spend 4 or 5 hours here. Make sure to dress for the weather and be sure to follow all the different paths. It gets busy during the autumn season, when most visitors are there to see the magnificent autumnal colours;... More

A good day out for everyone who likes the outdoors. There is a fascinating church in the grounds which is well worth a visit, and the coffee shops and garden centre very well stocked. Overall highly recommended.
