The Grand Avenue, which is in it’s infancy, is planted with Pope’s Seat Provenance Beech to mature over the next century.

Winter time at Bodenham…

The nights may be longer and the days are shorter and it can be cold. But there is still plenty to see and do during the winter season at Bodenham. Falling temperatures and clear skies make for some frosty mornings and here at Bodenham you can experience the beauty of a wonderful winter walk. The ice and snow can transform the Arboretum into something quite magical.

February will see the ‘Gingerbread Trail’ open here at Bodenham for some half term fun as we eagerly await Spring.

Full details of events can be found on our ‘What’s On’ section.

Make the most of what's left of Half Term this weekend with a trip around our Gingerbread Trail! Entrance also allows you to visit the Farm where you can meet our donkeys and the ewes who are ready to lamb and our cows who are due to calf soon. Then there's always the ducks who are always busy-beeing on the terrace. If you're lucky you might even get the farm dogs giving you a guided tour! Our Visitor Centre serves lots of lovely hot food / home produce too. Bodenham Arboretum is situated in Wolverley, Kidderminster DY11 5TB. Open 10am - 5pm. Admission fee to the Arboretum: £6.50 Adults, £3.50 Children aged 5+ (under 5s are free of charge). Dogs are welcome too...we just ask you keep them on a lead please. ... See MoreSee Less

We had a lovely family day out. Lots of tired kids and parents. Only thing let down was being charged £21 for drinks that cost £14. Luckily realised so was able to get the money back.

We had a super lovely day there today x

Meet Elvis. Elvis lives here at Bodenham. His day job should be on the farm but we are led to believe he has been masquerading as an Arboretum Guide 🙂 especially during the Gingerbread Trail. Give him a 'like' if you've had the pleasure of his company.... ... See MoreSee Less

We had the pleasure of Elvis and his friend today, they were both very patient and extremely well behaved with three very small ball throwers!

Elvis made our trip to Bodenham extra special.We really enjoyed his company 💓

He’s a dude

my toddler loved doing the start of the gingerbread trail with him as soon as you opened last Saturday, from car park but he left us by the chickens

Enjoying playing with a cone😁

All 3 of the lovely dogs played with us last week 🙂

My family and I met Elvis today. What a lovely dog, he was very playful and followed us on the gingerbread trail. 😊

Adore Elvis & Shirley! They always know where to take their ball for a game with us.

My son loves playing with Elvis and his ball 🎾

Our History

It all started in 1973 when David Binnian and his wife, Jennifer bought the land with a vision that took over 30 years to realise. It started as my hobby, just planting a few trees each winter, until it developed into what it is today. It’s now run as a family venture, with the second generation of Binnians fully involved in its planning, development and day-to-day management, and the third generation hovering in the wings. When Bodenham received conditional English Heritage status in 1995 it was realised that this was a major opportunity for the Arboretum to be enjoyed by the public and for it to remain in the family.
