We visited last year, but earlier in the year and saw the beautiful Bluebells. This time it was the autumn colours A small tea shop for may visitors. Wonderful woodland walks, the red route may look far, but I would recommend it. Nice to see that dogs are allowed. So nice to see families enjoying time together too.

The ticket seller said that next week would be even more splendid! Hard to imagine. Deciduous trees shedding their beautiful brightly coloured leaves in the Autumn can only compare with the breathtaking spectacle of cherry blossom in the spring. These beautifully kept grounds are a showcase of the best of British and foreign trees, the boathouse is spectacular, as is... More

We had on a previous occasion enjoyed visiting the Westonburt Arboretum in Tetbury, near Gloucester – probably a two hour drive from our home in Surrey. The Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey had been recommended to us by friends and is only half an hour away; it boasts trails that overlook trees and bushes in what might be called a valley.... More

Took our puppies here today for a beautiful Autumn walk, amazing colours, reds, pinks, golds, yellows, lots of different paths to choose from easy and flat to steep steps. Lake with a boathouse, small tea shop with tasty soup and friendly service. Just one negative, lots of puppies walking which is great but could not find a doggy bin anywhere... More

We arrived at the aboretum by bus and as the National Trust website mentions that visitors arriving public transport are entitled to a voucher for £1 off purchases in tea room, we mentioned this to the person in the ticket office. We were informed, very brusquely, that even though we arrived by public transport we still had to pay for... More

Visited this Arboretum for the beautiful changing colours of the autumn leaves. There are oaks, rowans and maples. Truly glorious. There are steep slopes, but the paths have hard surfaces which enable access to areas. There are also steps, lake and boathouse and a viewing platform. There are other gems to discover too. There is a small tea room. The... More

Massive park, with lots of outside space. We went just before the leaves changed, would be lovely in autumn. Started the guided tour but was a bit slow paced. We just wanted to catch up with each other. Coffee shop worth a stop.

We often go to Winkworth as it is very local to us and with National Trust membership we can visit when we like - last went in Summer and am looking forward to going for a lovely Autumn walk through the trees - colours will be wonderful. All year round wonderful colours, flowers, trees and very relaxing with a beautiful... More

Lovely National Trust property with well marked walks. Set on a hillside, which is quite steep and uneven, so access for the less able may be difficult. The only refreshments and at the entrance at a small tea room. Limited menu. Last weekend it was very popular with families with young children and dogs. Well worth the walk in autumn... More
