  • We have visited here twice. In the summer there was an art & sculpture exhibition with sculptures all around. Plenty of walks in the wood, a walled garden with plenty of seasonal planting, and a lake. In the winter there was obviously less to see and the weather affects where you can walk. However on a cold but sunny day it was a great place to just walk and talk and chill out in. There is a cafe and shop selling the normal things, some local produce, and garden plants. As it is run by volunteers I have no problem paying the small entrance fee and other prices are reasonable.
  • Beautiful kept gardens. Friendly staff in the cafe, good food & prices are OK.
  • I used to use the public footpath that runs through here, but last time I went, even though I was standing 20 feet from where the path ran, they charged me and my son £8.50 to walk through the gate even though we had no intention of going to the arboretum and if we had walked a mile back up the road we could have walked past it anyway. Sad to say it has become a heartless money making operation with no care for the local community. Rip off Britain at its worst. Very disappointed after having been walking through here to Earl's Colne airfield for 20 years. The elderly chap on the gate was very mean spirited and clearly did not grow up around here. I will not be coming here again.
  • Warm sunny British bank holiday......lovely place to be. Cafe staff excellent and prices good.
  • A bit mean of them to charge my husband and the dog to walk the footpath (dogs not allowed into the arboretum ) while I paid the same to visit the garden and arboretum.
