The Quinta Arboretum

The Lovell Quinta Arboretum

This 28 acre arboretum at The Quinta was created by Sir Bernard Lovell. It is now owned by the Tatton Garden Society.

The planting over the years at The Quinta Arboretum has established the layout of the site which is divided into avenues and definite areas. The avenues and areas are named and many of them commemorate various events in the life of the Lovells.
There are grand avenues which take you among trees and shrubs, as well as wild flower meadows and a nature reserve.
The arboretum is in a delightful setting with views across the River Dane.
The Quinta is worth visiting any time of year.
