Adventures in an award-winning park

Set in a Grade II listed landscape, you’ll find Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest on the Kent/Sussex border. We’re very proud to share the space with what is considered to be the largest and most complete collection of conifers in the world. With such a big reputation you can imagine that Bedgebury draws a global crowd.

There are 2,500 acres to explore. With three walking, three cycle (family and mountain-biking), plus four orienteering and running trails, you’re spoilt for choice. 

Take the family on the play trail – while you enjoy the calming ambience of the forest, the children can clamber on the play furniture enroute. There’s lots for them to discover including the shipwreck, the mighty tree house and the giant spiders webs.

You can also take in the stunning Pinetum views with a picnic or while enjoying some refreshments at the Bedgebury café which serves a wide range of locally sourced food.

  • Coming on a Saturday? Get here for 9am and do the parkrun first!
  • Tackle one of the walking trails.
  • Explore nearby Bewl Water, complete with a range of leisure and recreational activities.
  • Took a twelve year old and nine year old - both went on the Junior Course - alone - and were properly and entertainingly challenged by it. The staff are very friendly and completely helpful - and genuinely convey the feeling that they want the Go-Apers to have a fun time. If there were six stars: 6.

  • We visited Go Ape Junior at Bedgebury and had a great time. In fact, it was one of the highlights of half-term for the children! The staff were helpful and friendly. My son got scared part way through one of the courses and one staff member was extremely calm and helpful to get him back onto a platform. We will definitely return and would recommend Go Ape to friends.

    Lisa Summers

    Coo

  • Would highly recommend! The instructors are friendly and seem to enjoy their job and there is also room to do things independently which is nice. Was a really good experience and I would do it again.

  • We booked Go Ape junior for our 7 and 4 year old. Both were a little bit anxious at first, but the team were really reassuring and great with children. We all loved the zip wire at the end! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a little bit of a challenge!
