Good for a walk. For nature lovers. Although not so fun on rainy weather. Peaceful place, more recommended for seniors.

This is a beautiful spot to visit. It is very peaceful and the surrounding countryside is scenic. Just don't expect to find anything resembling a cathedral. There are signs telling you what part of the tree cathedral you are in but it is very hard to picture it at ground level. Worth a half hour stop if you are driving... More

We go all the time to walk the dogs, collect conkers, look at the seasons changing and meeting the wood carvings. Have been going for years and only recently discovered the Orchard.

Firstly, the road leading up to the carpark was almost impassable with potholes. Then the grass path going to the cathedral was rutted and muddy from cars. Also the nave itself has been driven on and rutted. I was then quite surprised to see a national trust Land Rover driving along making it even worse. All this mud made the... More

A lovely tranquil place. Following the outline of the "cathedral" is fun. Leave plenty of time for contemplation.

Sunny Sunday afternoon walkabout of a bank holiday weekend. Free parking via pot holed access road following signs. Very gentle walkabout. Dogs loved exploring trees and bushes and other dogs.

What a beautiful place to walk around . I went when it was sunny and loved it . Takes 1 hour to walk all the way round but plenty of room to site and bask in the sun.

This is a lovely place to visit, run by the national trust, it is very peaceful and very well kept. Its nice to wonder around and relax to the sounds of the birds. Check the times of the car park before you visit though.

Tree Cathedral was planted in the 1930.s World War by Edmund Kell Blyth to honour the memory of colleagues who had served with him in the First World War. I visited on a wet February day when it was extremely muddy and wished I had brought wellies as I slid around praying I would not fall over into a mudbath.... More
