Visited with family including small children. Nice 1.5 mile hike thru the woods and hills. Plenty of entertainment for all. Highly recommended.
Visited Winkworth on a sunny summers day. It was a great day out with lots of walking tracks and some great views across the Arboretum. Recommend it for a great days walk and good for picnics with the family and friends.
As it was a nice sunny day we thought we would take a drive out to Godalming and have walk round the National Trust's Winkworth Arboretum. We've been visiting the place for nearly 40 years, it's still pretty much the same now as it was then. It's a marvellous natural landscaped place with an abundance of lovely shrubs, bluebells etc.
The main entrance is at the top of the hill, and then there are a variety of paths (and steps) some of which skirt the hill, some descend steeply, all of which lead through the vast tree collection.

We had baked potatoes (cheese and beans) - these tasted great, the staff were busy but polite and helpful. We walked around the... 更多
Lovely day among the most beautiful trees and shrubs. The azaleas were at their best the day we visited and the colours were stunning. Very clearly laid out walks so you knew the steps involved and just a beautiful, natural landscape. Well worth a visit.
