  • Marvelous place, collection of trees provides an optimal mixture of colours in autumn and in spring. We visit every year in October and November, several times - because each time the colour composition is different. There is a deep valley in the park, complete with a lake, and hills - perfect landscaping solution - Lake District in miniature. And, just in case the nature isn't everything you need, there are home made cakes, ice cream and lunches cooked on site.
  • Good place for an extended walk. Great place for Azaleas etc in season. Lovely colours in the autumn. Tearoom. Dogs welcome on lead
  • Well kept lovely garden. Good facilities and free parking. Entry fee is over £7 per adult which I think is a bit steep which is why I gave it only 3 stars.
  • Beautiful place to go especially in the autumn because of the amazing colours of the leaves. The boat house is the best bit.
  • Great arboretum and well maintained. The tea room at the end could be improved and gets very crowded at weekends.
