Well, hot dog! Have you heard the latest, kitchen crew?
You may remember our blog about the exciting prospect of Westonbirt Arboretum’s new treetop walkway in Gloucestershire, which we shared last year. Well, we are pleased to announce that it’s finally open! So, if you’re a fan of our natural kitchens – and all other organic things – this is the ideal day out.
The incredible aerial walkway opened in April, providing nature-lovers with a sweet view from amongst the canopy of the arboretum’s 15,000 trees. Within two hours of cutting the ribbon, hundreds of visitors had flocked to Westonbirt to experience the awesome bird’s-eye-view of the tree conservation centre. Celebrating the wondrous nature of trees, visitors can experience some 2,500 species of tree from a whole new perspective, and can find out lots of fascinating facts about the trees along the route. Cool, huh?
As if this remarkable new attraction wasn’t enough to draw nature-enthusiasts to the 600-acre arboretum, it also boasts one of the oldest trees in Britain: a small-leaved lime tree thought to be about 2000 years old! Unlike many other arboretums, Westonbirt’s stunning collection of trees was planted with fantabulous visual appeal in mind, rather than planting according to their botanical order, making this truly one of the most magnificent centres of its kind!
If you fancy popping in, Westonbirt Arboretum can be easily reached in just 15 minutes from Junction 18 of the M4, or 20 minutes from Junction 13 of the M5. Don’t forget our Gloucestershire showroom is not too far from the arboretum, so – if you’re in the area – please feel free to stop by and see our splendid oak kitchens, solid wood cabinets and wooden worktops.
Ta ta for now,
