Bates Green Garden logo


Bates Green is also home to the famous Bluebell Walk.

During the bluebell season in spring our wood, Beatons Wood, puts on a fantastic display of colour with carpets of white wood anemones followed by vistas of bluebells.

Since 1972 the Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail has developed into seven interesting walks over three working farms raising money for local charities. The walk through the wood is 2/3 mile (1100 meters) and suitable for wheelchair users. At Parkwood Farm, milking of the large dairy herd can be seen from a special viewing gallery every afternoon. At Primrose Farm there is a horse livery. There are ewes and lambs, and female pygmy goats with their kids, for children to see close up. 

Refreshments are served in the Bluebell Barn.

While the Bluebell Walk is open, Bates Green Garden is open every day.
