“Fantastic Autumn Colours!”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

Extensive woodland with a vast variety of trees. The Autumn colours are spectacular. However the cafe gets exceptionally busy and crowded in the peak Autumn months and is quite expensive.

“A haven for almost anyone”
Reviewed 20 October 2011

On a beautiful Autumn day, what better place could one choose to go. There weren't as many trees in their Autumnal splendour as we had expected - this year has all of nature confused - but such a wonderfully relaxing place to spend the day.

There are two areas here, one where dogs are permitted and one where they are not. Both are wonderful - dog walkers will not mind being kept to only one section as it is beautiful and the bigger area of the two.

A place to visit again and again. Local people should become Members as this would give them access whenever they chose, as well as FREE entry into other wonderful gardens in the UK. For the rest of us, it's still worthwhile taking membership as keeping this wonderful place in good order for generations to come is a good use of a very small portion of your income.

“Country delight”
Reviewed 19 October 2011

the variety and groupings of trees means a wander through the open parkland / forest is a delight for those who enjoy flora. Highly recommended at any time of year but if the weather is inclement bear in mind there is no shelter once you leave the cafe!

“"They took all the trees & put them in a tree museum..."”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

"...and they charged the people £9 each just to see them!"
Money well spent.
It doesn't matter what time of year you go there's always something new to see.
Take a camera, if the sun is streaming through the leaves or it's pouring with rain get creative with mood and colour, if the weathers dull look for close ups of leaves or bark.
Enjoy the fresh air.
