Arboretum

Enjoy impressive displays of spring flowering bulbs – from swathes of snowdrops, daffodils and narcissi, to the beautiful blossom of our magnolias and flowering cherries.

In early spring acres of daffodils and later primroses, bluebells and foxgloves line many of the woodland walks and plantations.

Beautiful blossom adorns a variety of trees spread out all over the Arboretum, such as Magnolias, Cherries, Crab Apple and the Jargonelle Pear trees in the Conservation hedge that line part of the mile long drive.

This is the lambing and calving season and the new borns can be seen in the barns and fields on the farm. A little later come the new chicks hatching from the farmyard poultry.

Firewood Logs

Seasoned logs for your log burner or open fireplace delivered to your door by Transit Tipper or collect by prior arrangement.

Firewood logs are also available in bulk bags or net.

All our logs are split lengthways to ensure better burning and sawn to length.
