Batsford is home to one of the largest private tree collections in the country with something to see throughout the year.  Enjoy early colour from the snowdrops, spring-flowering bulbs, spectacular Japanese flowering cherries and stunning Davidia tree; escape the heat under the tree canopy in summer and prepare to be amazed by the outstanding autumn colour!  Wander through 56 acres of wild gardens, paths and streams’; marvel at stunning views across the Evenlode Valley and find beautiful oriental-influenced statues tucked into leafy glades. Batsford Arboretum is the perfect place to let the kids run around and let off steam or simply to enjoy a gentle stroll through the intimate and romantic tree collection.
At Batsford Arboretum you’ll find fabulous lunches, afternoon teas and cakes all home-baked and made from locally sourced produce wherever possible.  Enjoy your meal in the Garden Terrace Café where you can soak up the sun from the wooden deck and enjoy the tranquil surroundings that Batsford offers.
