Had a lovely few hours strolling around this impressive arboretum. Stunning autumnal colours! Staff were all very friendly, cheerful and informative. We started off at the falconry centre which was the most impressive collection of birds of prey I have ever seen. Well kept enclosures...More

Good disabled parking.... there is a cafe ... but bring a picnic to take in and enjoy the scenery.... and simply chill-out. Beautifully kept .... good in all seasons.

I went for a walk round the arboretum, and Halloween trail , that was fun . The birds of prey area and animal area isn’t the best , it’s a little grotty, and not very inspiring . Think your better sticking with the trees. Ok...More

Awash with children, as it's half term, the cafe staff remained cool, calm and friendly. Plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the walks through the trees, lots of different paths to follow, lots of colour to enjoy this autumn time. No children with us...More
