Batsford Arboretum is a firm favourite with our Little Trekkers. More compact than Westonbirt and Stourhead, it has an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, and you really do feel at liberty to wander amongst the trees. Set on a hillside with superb views over the surrounding countryside, it’s a fantastic setting.

One thing we always like to do at this time of year is to go and see the trees in all their autumn glory. I wrote something similar this time last year, but am unashamedly going to say it again: if you haven’t yet been for an autumn walk amongst the leaves, then you really should go now.
Something we lack a bit in the northwest are those beautiful cathedral like woods with tall stretching beech trees. Of course in the autumn nothing much can beat a cold walk with the leaves gently tumbling down to the ground and the smell of snow in the air.
If you live within travelling distance of The Hermitage, then you really should visit now to see it in all its autumn glory.
Another place we like to go – especially in the autumn – is the National Trust estate at Stourhead, a magnificent landscaped water garden.
