Over the years we have walked here probably every week with our dogs, we love it. You should definitely become a member, it's not too expensive for what you get and always nice to give back.

Was impressed with the Arboretum, but disappointed that so much was inaccessible, It is a very pretty walk through fields, lakes and rivers and although close to motorway, very rural feel to it. Good place to dog walk, but the wire fencing closing off so...More
