We had free tickets for disabled people and careers which is great. It’s a nice place for a walk, pretty muddy this time of year which is to be expected There was a pig and cute little piglet which was a nice bonus to visiting here.

Whilst the trees are beautiful, the map is deeply unhelpful as there are absolutely no signs on the paths. The nice lad in the booth was totally reconciled to the paucity of signage. My view is overall a disappointing arboretum, more a small unexciting wood

We were really looking forward to our visit to the arboretum but left disappointed. There aren’t many acers so the beautiful autumn colour was only really spectacular in one small area, by the road. The provided map and on site signage could be so much better. Westonbirt is so much better.

Perhaps unwisely, we visited on the first day of half-term. Very busy, yet timed entrance by ticket. The main car parks were full (at 11 am) with barriers preventing entry to the overflow car park. Found a way in but care was needed as very muddy in places. Was concerned about being able to drive out again. Wandered round the grounds but lack of signage made the map difficult to follow. At each crossroads overheard people debating their whereabouts. No one-way system so continually having to step aside for other visitors who were oblivious of social distancing. Queue for toilets "only one can enter at a time " into the building yet the Gents was separate so men were queuing unnecessarily. Returned to the car to find a small dumper truck (presumably there to help stuck vehicles) parked, no driver, on the best bit of grass to get to the exit! Managed it. As for the trees? Yes, the Acers were beautiful, but not many of them. Some other trees were interesting and unusual but if you live in the country, no great spectacle or treat. At £6/£4.50 not expensive as an attraction but poor organisation rather spoilt the experience.

The arboretum is outside the city but well worth a visit. The paths nearest the car park are accessible dirt paths but further away they are grass. Easy to spend a couple of hours here. The autumn colours are just starting and the Acers in particular are splendid.
