Visiting the Arboretum

Let me tell you more about the Beale Arboretum

– Andrew Beale, Managing Director

The grounds

Hotel guests are welcome to visit the grounds at any time, and the public can visit on any day of the week and at any time of the year.


Visiting the Arboretum

The Arboretum is open to the public every day. No guided tours are available on these days, but descriptive leaflets are available from reception.

Admission £3.00, children are free, payable at reception.

Admission is FREE if you have a drink or meal in the bar, lounge or restaurant at the hotel, or if you are a resident in the hotel or attending a function or conference. 

Conducted tours for private parties

Private conducted tours of the arboretum for groups (minimum 10 persons, no maximum) can be arranged if booked in advance, normally on weekdays.

The walk round the trees usually takes one and a half hours, and is normally taken by the Managing Director Andrew Beale.

The charge for these conducted tours is FREE midweek, and £3.50 per person at weekends.

We recommend you organise tea at the hotel before or after your group tour.
