TOURISM INFORMATION

 

 

We'll be building up a list of places of interest local to The Kilkeney Inn that registered users can rate. This will help visitors to the area find the best places to go and might even provide some inspiration for us locals too. If you want more information on any of these, why not pop in and see us - we might have some further literature, advice or even discount tickets for some of them.

Arlington Row

Arlington Row

 

The picturesque Arlington Row cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of weavers' cottages in the 17th century. The cloth produced there was sent to Arlington Mill on the other side of Rack Isle. The cloth was then hung on wooden timber frames on Rack Isle after being degreased at Arlington Mill.

Batsford Arboretum

Batsford Arboretum

 

Batsford is home to one of the finest botanical collections in the country and is run by the charitable trust, The Batsford Foundation.

The Arboretum is planted on a south facing slope which means visitors get to see our magnificent tree and plant collections from an unusual angle, as well as the stunning views of the Evenlode Valley beyond.

At 56 acres in size, Batsford is an intimate and romantic place to visit, with interest all year round from the first snowdrops of spring, right through to the outstanding autumn colour in October and November.

Batsford is also home to a beautiful new wooden visitor centre where you'll find the Garden Terrace Café, Gift and Garden Shop and the Plant Centre within the walls of the Victorian kitchen garden.
