This arboretum has several miles of paths that lead through over 3000 species of shrubs and trees and 300 species of flowers. It has 9 pools, a farm, 2 islands, a fernery, gazebo, azalea garden, and a visitor centre/cafe.

This time of year it really is beautiful with it’s autumn colours. It’s so easy to lose the day here.

The place is the brain child of David Binnian and his wife Jennifer. In 1973 they bought the land and 30 years later they realise their dream. It started as my hobby, they planting a few trees each winter, until it developed into what it is today. It’s now a family business, with the second generation of Binnians involved in its planning, development and day-to-day management. Bodenham received conditional English Heritage status in 1995.
