Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest
Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest is a fantastic place to spend time, whether on your own, with friends or as a family. It offers so many different ways to get active – from taking a relaxing stroll through its collection of more than 12,000 trees, to taking part in running groups, exercise classes or taking on one of the three cycling trails for cyclists of all levels and ages.
Bedgebury offers a variety of walking to choose from, depending on your level of experience and how adventurous you’re feeling. The ‘Be here now’ trail provides an opportunity to relax and take a breather amongst the calming trees, while the ‘forest walking’ trail offers routes of two different distances. Bedgebury also provides instructor-led Nordic Walking sessions, which require pre-booking.
There are two family cycle trails at Bedgebury, providing the perfect activity for a family day out. The single-track mountain bike trail offers a sterner challenge for the adrenaline junkies, with all routes taking in the stunning scenery of Bedgebury forest. For casual cyclists, bike hire is available on site via Quench Cycles.
There is so much more to discover at Bedgebury, with a weekly parkrun, instructor-led activities and regular events and attractions, which are ideal for families. There’s also an excellent cafe on site, so once you’re there you can really make a day of it.
