bodenham - image via Plant Hunter Fairs ©What a wonderful setting for a plant event! From the mile-long approach drive to the heart of this 156 acre arboretum the beauty of the setting just keeps on unfolding. The arboretum features over 3000 species of tree and shrub from all over the world. Pathways wander through the landscape of trees, pools, meadows and farmland. You can explore the farm with its sheep, lambs, cattle and rare breed poultry.  The visitor centre and lakeside restaurant serve a wide variety of home cooked meals and light refreshments including meats from the farm. Why not take your tea on the terrace overlooking the main pool whilst drinking in the beautiful surroundings? Entry to the plant fair and access to the restaurant are completely free with free parking. Entry to the arboretum is optional and at normal prices. Groups of 25 or more booking with the garden in advance are offered reduced entry prices to the arboretum. (Contact the arboretum direct to arrange).
