Notice: Due to the strong winds the pop-up playground event on 31 March had to be cancelled. We're really sorry about any disappointment this may cause. The arboretum will also stay closed on this date because of the weather. For more information please call 01225 782875.

Delightful English country garden

Full of variety, this charming garden shows the English country style at its best.

Peaceful water gardens and herbaceous borders, with organically shaped topiary, demonstrate an imaginative use of colour and planting, creating unexpected vistas.

Stroll through the arboretum with its wonderful species of trees and naturally planted spring bulbs.
