Harcourt Arboretum a beautiful place to enjoy a family day out

Harcourt Arboretum is home to an extensive collection of trees

With spring in full bloom it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful gardens around us.

Holiday rental company Hundredrooms has selected some of the most idyllic gardens to visit as wonderful places to enjoy a picnic and spend some quality family time together in amongst the spring blossom.

All of these gardens truly come to life during the month of May, making them spectacular places to visit for a weekend to remember.

Get lost amongst the champion trees, transport yourself colourful flower filled meadows and inhale the sweet scents of spring.

Spending quality days out in nature with the family has many benefits such as increasing happiness levels, encouraging creativity, cementing strong bonds and increasing cognitive function.

And we’re lucky enough to have to go far to enjoy one of the places on its list – Harcourt Arboretum, Oxford.

Belonging to the University of Oxford, this delightful garden spanning 130 acres is home to the best collection of trees in Oxfordshire.

One of the most spectacular months to visit this beautiful garden is in May when a sea of bluebells is present across the vast meadow.

Harcourt Garden is a magnificent place to enjoy a family day out where the little ones can explore some of the oldest redwoods in the UK and learn about all the fantastic species of trees the garden contains.

Picnics are permitted in the woodland area so remember to pack your sandwiches and snacks.
