We had a lovely walk on a windy day and enjoyed all the snow drops and tiny pink cyclamens. The daffodils are just opening and patches can be glimpsed through the trees. Most of the trees are bare of leaves but the delicate yellow and orange witch hazel is out and looks very pretty. Love the sculptures.

Spent almost two hours enjoying the varied layout and variety of trees and other plants; can imagine what it might be like in the Spring. Nice homemade soup and bread in the modern cafeteria. Overall, good value for money.

Depending when you vist the trees can be very stunning, a little over priced, and annoyingly people with dogs who let them use the Arboretum as a toilet and who do not clean up after there pets and who also allow there dogs to roam free and think its oh so lovely when there dog jumps up with dirty paws...

Free car parking, restaurant, gift shop, toilets, dogs on lead allowed but you must clean up after your own dog, and there are dog bins for the dog poo. Blossom and Magnolia trees would look beautiful once they flower. I would recommend this place for all ages. 😊😊😊

Visited today on a cold snowy day. The snowdrops, aconites, hellebores and cyclamen that we saw were lovdly, would have liked more snowdrops. Unfortunately due to no fault of their own, there was no water and so the cafe was closed. Will visit later in the year on hopefully a warmer day

Spent a lovely couple of hours at Batsford Arboretum yesterday on a day out in the Cotswolds. The snowdrops and aconites were out and made lovely displays, and there were even some early daffodils in bloom. Lovely views across surrounding landscape, accessible paths for anyone with mobility problems, a good coffee shop, nice shop and friendly staff make this place... More

Lovely place to have lunch and spend the afternoon, on a bright sunny January day… looking forward to seeing it at other times of the year… well worth a visit!

Visiting the Cotswolds for a long weekend with friends and decided to call in here. We had a lovely walk and stayed for a couple of hours. Would love to call back in the Spring, Summer and Autumn to see the differences

The Aboretum is always worth a visit, with a well stocked shop, basic but friendly cafe with good views across the vally and of course the stunning scenery if you plan to work off your scone & tea with a walk. The walk around the ground is not far, I would guess at less than a mile for the main... More

We came here and enjoyed the gardens and the cafe. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds are not huge but they are big enough with some nice features. The cafe was nice although limited hours during the winter.
