The Arboretum covers 85 acres of woodland walks. It boasts the finest collection of trees and shrubs in the country. It was created by Colonel Sir Leonard Ropner Bt.(1885-1977) and is now owned and managed by his son Sir John Ropner Bt. It also has a falconry, with regular displays. As well as woodland walks they have a full programme of activities, many of which are for children so it can be a fun family day out.
