    We live locally and The Garden Terrace Cafe is our favourite place for an excellent Sunday lunch. You will not find a better quality roast Sunday lunch at any of the area gastro pubs.  more »

  • Right size for a good half a day wandering and discovering. Impressive and varied collection. I like that most are labeled. Interesting landscape and features too. Well worth a visit and the entrance fee.
  • Beautiful park with lots of variety. Especially pretty on the spring. Big enough for a leisurely stroll or a run and nice activities for kids too. Seems to get busy later in the day.
  • Large area of woodland with easy access paths and plenty of year round interest. Could do with a little more for kids to do but all in all a good family destination
  • A very pleasant morning was spent looking around the arboretum. We were not too late to catch the autumn colours. A useful tip at this time of year is to turn up early. We arrived about 10:00 and we almost had the place to ourselves, a bonus for getting photos without having to wait for other visitors to walk out of the viewfinder! By the time we returned to the cafĂ© the ques for the entrance were stretching for quite a distance. We had a good meal at the restaurant before buying a few plants at the garden centre.
  • Great place but wrong address. Entrance is in the south. Look for "Batsford Arboretum & Garden Centre" on GMaps
