Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, even though we had chosen a dull, damp day. Following the roadway lined with trees, we passed a private house and then to our surprise a beautiful unspoilt hamlet with a church appeared. Out came the camera!! Using the provided map, we continued on footpaths enjoying the snowdrops and daffodils. We agreed we should return in... More

We were recommended to visit here by some friends. Although it was a cold day in January and not very busy, it was a very good experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the walk for about 2 miles through the extensive grounds are just beautiful. After the walk we visited the cafe which was really very nice and... More

This arboretum is a good size and a lovely place to wander and enjoy nature. We take our dog on our visits and she loves it. Dog friendly place. Beautiful trees/ plants and enjoyable to visit in different seasons.

I am swiftly coming to the conclusion that garden centre cafes produce some of the most exceptional food I have tasted. I could see that many people had come into the arboretum cafe just to have lunch there without visiting the garden area. There were many splendid looking cakes on offer, including gluten free, but it was the roast Sunday... More

Not the best of days for our first visit, but all the signs are good for many more, when the weather improves. Large grounds, elevation, running water and falls, excellent planting and stunning trees, clean, clear paths. Tress are identified which we found useful. Nice show of snowdrops around. Very nice cafe area, with outside seating ready for the better... More

Lovely place for a stroll especially on a cold sunny day. Snowdrops out which was lovely. Although we didn't go in the coffee shop the food and cakes looked lovely. The garden centre had a nice range of flowers despite the time of year.

Highly recommend Batsford Arboretum - it is a little pricey re entrance fee but its so lovely inside, with lakes, waterfalls, viewpoint and even a cave! Perfect family day out with the dog (although dogs must be kept on leads). Lovely cafe and garden centre also. Highly recommend!

Family visit here, involving walk, coffee and lunch. Enjoyed all three in equal measure, coffee shop does great home made food. Useful map of arboretum, covered most of it, like seeing deer in park, plus church on site.

As it was January it was completely empty and we had a wonderful walk through the trees and around the church and gravestones. Lots of history and lots to see. Daffodils were already out.

We spent a couple of very pleasant hours in this lovely place which has an interesting history; well worth looking up. The gift shop is great ...we bought a couple of interesting souvenir's to take home. Lunch in the cafe was tasty, well presented and good value. The arboretum made for a lovely walk on a surprisingly sunny winters day... More
