Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest

About

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.

___

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

The National Pinetum is a world-class collection of dramatic conifers and a beautiful setting for a country walk in all seasons. 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.

      Didn't know anything about this place until we visited a hotel close by. We were looking for somewhere to have a cycle ride during our trip. OK so £10 for a mid week car stop seemed a little steep... Read full review

      We stopped here on our way back from a holiday in Rye to break the journey for our young granddaughter. The car park price is a bit steep if you think of it as per car but we considered just under... Read full review

      Shockingly expensive car park. Almost turned round and left the place. Went with my daughter for a mountain bike ride and could not believe how much they were asking. Paid and had an enjoyable ride... Read full review
