Open all year, Bedgebury is the perfect place for healthy outdoor activity. The National Pinetum is home to a world leading collection of conifers and is a centre for international conservation. It also provides a beautiful setting for peaceful walks and picnics, whether wrapping up on a cold frosty morning, or enjoying a beautiful day of sunshine, and seasonal trails explaining more about the Pinetum can be followed throughout the year.
Bedgebury Forest features an adventure play trail, Go Ape, and miles of trails for family cycling, mountain-biking, walking, and running. Additional events, trails and activities are offered all year round, and you may also find a Gruffalo!
The Visitor Centre features a wonderful café with panoramic views across the Pinetum, a cycle hire shop and bike wash, toilets, showers, and information centre.
