"Magnificent trees in cared for surroundings"

"A visit to the Arley Arboretum is the perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon, enjoy a leisurely stroll through magnificent trees combined with a visit to the tea room. Enter a different zone of tranquility and majesty away from the pressures of day to day life, a great way to relax and unwind. ... There were beautiful flowers and strange looking chickens to see. No litter and well cut grass in every corner of the estate, somebody takes the time and effort to make this happen and they are to be congratulated on the result. The tea room cake selection and lunch time specials were fantastic, delicious and excellent value..."
