Formerly part of Lynford Hall estate, the Arboretum still retains features which reflect its “parkland” origins. An important collection of over 200 species of trees.
Various species of broad-leaved and conifer trees are represented. In springtime carpets of snowdrops, bluebells and daffodils can be seen, whilst autumn brings a blaze of reds and golds.
A popular place for quiet recreation.
Noted for its variety of bird life, spring flowers and autumn fungi, the arboretum is the perfect place to enjoy some peace and quiet.
The autumnal colour show is not to be missed.
