Some photos from a recent walk through the Pinetum. We can reach this by following bridal ways and footpaths from the end of Bishops Lane, which passes our gate.
Bedgebury forest and the pinetum are open all year, and have concerts in the summer months. Cycling in the forest is very popular all year round.

Little uns’ first adventure
Let your tinies follow the great explorers of yesteryear as they scour the land for exotic plants in the exotic setting of a Kent forest. Bedgebury’s wooded play trail includes a shipwreck, a climbing wall and giant spider web climbing frame for your budding Darwins to negotiate. They’ll just have to imagine the scurvy and boa constrictors.
