Batsford Arboretum is a treat for kids eager to explore the great outdoors! You can follow winding streams and watch the pond-life or set out to find some of the hidden creatures like Foo Dog, the Japanese Deer and the Big Buddha! Only the bravest would try to dodge our waterfall too: don't forget your waterproofs!
Batsford Arboretum is a wild garden with a unique collection of trees and plants, and it's heaving with wildlife! Check out the nesting boxes including those for owls, search for bugs and identify trees from their beautiful leaves.
Right on the doorstep of Batsford Arboretum is the Cotswold Falconry Centre where you'll be able to watch some of the world's rarest birds taking part in free flying demonstrations. Some get pretty close too! You can learn more about how the Centre is working to conserve rare birds through their very successful breeding programme.
Both attractions are disabled friendly although the arboretum may be challenging in very wet weather. Batsford Arboretum has two trampers which are available to hire in advance by members of the South West Countryside Mobility Scheme.
