Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest

About

Open every day, Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest is the perfect place for walking, cycling, riding and playing in a spectacular world of trees.

The National Pinetum is a world-class collection of conifers and a beautiful setting for a country walk in any season. The rolling hills of the High Weald AONB and a series of lakes, ponds and streams give Bedgebury a dramatic landscape to discover the beauty and diversity of trees. The two thousand-acre Bedgebury Forest offers miles of family cycling, mountain-biking, riding, walking and adventure play for all ages and abilities.

The Visitor Centre has cycle hire, refreshments and showers. As a location for healthy outdoor activity in a beautiful setting, Bedgebury is in a class of its own.

 

Please note: Bedgebury is often busy at peak times and has limited capacity in its car park. Please consider visiting off-peak if you can, and please check here before travelling. Occasionally the car park gets full and has to be closed at short notice, so it's good to have a Plan B. We heartily recommend Bewl Water, just over 5 miles away.
