Great day out on an Autumn day with fantastic colours and a fine collection of trees and plants. The views are always entrancing and the small corners of the gardens fascinating. Cafe/restaurant excellent though v busy. One downside - those of use who don't drive a tank are unfairly penalised by the appalling driveway into the car parks which removes... More

Batsford Aboretun is about a twenty minute drive where we live in the Cotswolds. The house and grounds are on the side of a hill just outside Moreton in Marsh with beautiful views looking towards Oxford. We go up there for a walk that takes about an hour most Sundays it is usually peaceful and quite and lovely just to... More

Batsford looking superb with autumn colour. Amazed at its popularity on a Monday which meant some queueing to get in and the restaurant so busy that we went elsewhere for lunch. The arboretum itself did not seem so congested and we had a very pleasant hour there

We went to Batsford earlier this month following a recommendation. It is a beautiful arboretum and garden setting in a superb elevated position with lovely far reaching views. A lot of the pathways are tarmaced and can be accessed in all weathers. The autumn colours were superb with some lovely painted bridges across some of the streams. There is also... More

I walked to the Batsford Arbortetum across the fields from Moreton-in-Marsh using the public right of way, about 1.5 miles. It was a great introduction to the arboretum, situated in gorgeous farmland. The arboretum itself is large with easy paths meandering through the points of interest. You can have lunch in the restaurant on the top of the hill overlooking... More

Well worth The entrance cost of £7 per person we really were not expecting it to be as pretty as it was and when you do get to the viewpoint, the most beautiful views over the Cotswolds. Anyone unsteady on their feet can have one of the disability scooters which will take you all around the Arboretum so if you... More

A place to be at one with nature and absorb the atmosphere. Loved my gently stroll through the trees and the undulating terrain. Certainly worth a visit for anyone who wants peace and quite in the midst of nature in the raw.

A great place to get out and stretch your legs in beautiful wooded surroundings. The arboretum is a manageable size although there are steep paths. There are well signposted paths for the less able. We caught the end of the autumn colour, with impressive red leafed trees amongst the golden leafed native species. A stand of giant redwoods was an... More

Decided to visit as the Arboretum has a fine selection of maples and with the cold weather the colours were fantastic. We walked for over two and half hours and really enjoyed the different areas for viewing and sitting down.
