4* Hilton Puckrup Hall Hotel, Batsford Arboretum & Highgrove Gardens Guided Tour including 2 course lunch.

Batsford Arboretum &  Highgrove Gardens Tour 2 Day Trip

 

Sunday 2 August 2020

 

Departing the local area we make a lunch stop and visit the Batsford Arboretum in the Cotswolds, home to the country's largest private collection of trees and shrubs.

Walk beside the pools and streams or soak up the sunshine beside the beautiful wild flower areas, where you'll find clouds of forget-me-knots, buttercups, foxgloves and orchids.  It’s time for some of the rarer trees to shine too – among them the Californian Nutmeg, Dawn Redwood and Maidenhair Tree.

 

We arrive at our 4* Hilton hotel in time to settle in before dinner.  This hotel has full leisure facilities to enjoy during your stay.

 

 

Monday 3 August 2020

 

A leisurely departure after breakfast to the private home of HRH The Prince of Wales.

 

We will first enjoy a two course ploughmans lunch (choice of Ham or Brie) in the restaurant before embarking on a guided tour of Highgrove Gardens.

 

HRH The Prince of Wales has spent 30 years transforming the grounds of Highgrove into what have been acknowledged as some of the most inspired and innovative gardens in the United Kingdom.  His Royal Highness’s strict adherence to organic and sustainable methods has helped create gardens which are both magical and intriguing while being environmentally sound; encouraging both plants and wildlife to thrive.

 

The garden tour lasts approximately two hours and is a walk of about 2 miles.

All garden tours are led by one of His Royal Highness’s garden guides. Visitors with walking difficulties should be aware that some paths are unmade. We suggest you wear stout shoes and suitable clothing as the tours continue during wet weather.
