Lynford Arboretum

I’ve been meaning to go here for ages and I’m so glad we did eventually visit! It’s a great set of managed trails – one of which is an access-tested trail with good surfaces.

There are three trails to choose from – we did a mash-up of all three and there are some lovely beauty spots by the water.  The blue and green trails are possibly more open to the elements in wetter weather but have lovely lake views – the parts we did were okay for pushchairs apart from one gate that you’d have to lift a pushchair over, plus the Sequoia Avenue was long-ish grass.

The audit below is for the accessible “Red” trail. Great little coffee van with a few cakes/pastries too, plus a few wood carvings, ancient oak and a water tower.  It’s supposed to be stunning in autumn!
