Bedgebury Pinetum

I took the kids, niece and my sister to Bedgebury Pinetum yesterday for the day out. The kids had so much fun playing in many of the purpose-built play areas. Some of which are brand new for this year. At least I think so, as I didn’t see them there last year when I went with the kids!

If you or your kids like going to forested areas for walks, trails, playing or what have you then I would definitely recommend Bedgebury Pinetum, however you should be aware of the parking charges. It’s not too expensive, and it’s well worth it.





Sadly the Gruffalo trail has gone, but has now instead been replaced with the “superworm” trail. I’m not too sure about that one, however the Gruffalo still remains!


Getting this photo was interesting. Ryan was already around 25ft off of the ground. I made the climb up even higher, just to get it! Scary!





As always my son is quite accident prone when going to places like this. Within 5 minutes of getting to the park he manages to hurt himself while climbing about on a rock and ends up giving himself the middle graze and bruise.


The Park closed at 7pm and this was taken at 6.43pm. We still had a 25 mins walk ahead of us, but I pressed on ahead, and I made it back to the car and paid for parking just before closing time! Quite lucky if you ask me!

Do you know of any other similar type places that are in the Kent / Sussex area that I might like? If you know of somewhere or have been there then drop a line below and tell me about it. It would be great to have several places to go during the summer with the kids.
