We visited today and found nothing of interest. I have visited numerous other arboretums and sculpture gardens in various parts of the UK and this was a big disappointment. Despite the £4 per head entrance fee, there was nothing to offer guidance or direction relating...More

We found this by chance when looking for something to do on Easter Bank Holiday Monday. There were only a handful of people visiting but what a wonderful place. So peaceful. Footpaths that weave their way through the woodland which was a mass of colour....More

Had a really wonderful time here, it was a lovely afternoon and the best part was we had the whole place to ourselves! Couldn't recommend this highly enough, really lovely. Just a note, it isn't a whole day out, as it is quite small! :)

The gardens are gorgeous - just the right amount of wild - and there are some fantastically exotic trees and shrubs, creating a very pretty canopy over a carpet of bluebells. One word of caution; I assume dogs are allowed, since there are no signs,...More

Do not come here if your idea of a garden is bedding plants and manicured lawns! This is a subtly managed woodland, with glorious unusual shrubs and trees, magical in spring with snowdrops and hellebores, then magnolias and other flowering trees, through to summer with...More

This is a lovely unspoilt wooded garden, left for nature to take it's course to a large extend. Entry is payable by way of an honesty box and this means there is no-one around to answer any questions. There was no map of the woodland,...More
