Batsford Arboretum is the medal winning home to one of the country’s largest private tree and shrub collections. 56 acres of wild gardens open up to stunning views, paths and streams and orient inspired statues. The garden has lots of interest all year round – from the early promise of snowdrops, spring flowering bulbs and Japanese flowering cherries to the shading tree canopy in summer and the outstanding autumn colour there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Batsford Arboretum is silver winner of the Cotswold Tourism Awards Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2014.
The visitor centre houses a great cafe which serves home baked lunches, cakes and afternoon teas.
