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.

    The park itself is stunning and well kempt, but they seriously need to do something about their car parking system. I have an annual membership and on many occasions I couldn't park there as the... Read full review

    Very disappointed to find vans with groups of cyclists from London in car park preparing for bike rides. Area was already crowded with local families, why are cyclists like this being allowed to... Read full review
