    Car Park is fine but more of a challenge if you drive a big Motorhome. Ideal place to allow young children to run around. Lovely setting and a great place to amble around gently.  more »

    Trees are arranged in the shape of a cathedral with all its various areas. The trees are all different species. Surrounded by grassy areas. Very peaceful.  more »

  • The access road is in need of repair but it's is an interesting space. It doesn't take long to walk round.
  • This is a lovely, peaceful area to come and relax. It was originally planted by Edmond K. Blyth in memory of his two friends who were killed in the First World War. We'll be going back with a flask of tea next time and stay a bit longer! Don't forget to put a few pennies in the slot by the gate for the upkeep of this tranquil place.
  • A fantastic large wooded area with trees laid out to the shape of a very large cathedral complete with chancel, nave and side chapels. A very peaceful and well thought out place that I hope to visit again!
  • As a National Trust member I wanted to think positively of this attraction but unfortunately there isn't much to think positive about. The tree cathedral is simply a small garden that is meant to resemble the layout of a cathedral. Though if you weren't told that you really wouldn't guess. You're unlikely to spend more than 10 minutes here and I suspect like ourselves most of the visitors were stopping off on the way back from the zoo. The one redeeming feature is that it is free for both members and the public. Overall though this simply isn't worth the trip.
  • So peaceful and beautiful and a bit like a maze
