The arboretum is run by The Batsford Foundation, a charitable trust which aims to promote conservation and advance public knowledge of gardens, arboreta and historic landscapes, while its unique tree and shrub collection, and plethora of flora and fauna, make it paradise for nature lovers of all ages.

The on-site Garden Terrace Café is perfect for locally sourced, seasonal lunches and afternoon teas, offering a great place for relaxing with friends. The pretty terrace is ideal for soaking up some sun during the warmer months, while appreciating views of the plant centre.
