Arboretum


The epicentre of the Arboretum lies around the big pool where many rare and ornamental trees can be seen in flower or fruit at all times of the year; their autumn colours are a special beauty.

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

Autumn at Bodenham…

Autumn is a wonderful time of year and a fantastic time to visit us. It is a time when we watch the landscape change into multi-coloured work of art – a riot of colour – perhaps the most spectacular in the area! It is a season famous for its harvest time, turning leaves, cooling temperatures and darkening nights. The shorter days are a sign to trees to begin to prepare for winter and visitors might even get to spot wildlife foraging for fruits and seeds as our woodland birds and animals prepare for it too. Keats called it the ‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness! ‘

You will see the leaf colour around the Arboretum range from a deep butter yellow through to orange, red and crimson, plus there is an abundance of berries. The Acers will go from bright yellow to vibrant oranges and reds. Scarlet Oaks will, as their name suggests, fill the woods with sweeps of vibrant red and even the Magnolia with its bright red seed pods adds to the spectacle. It truly is a natural fireworks spectacular throughout the autumn months.

Whilst we are closed Mondays and Tuesdays throughout September, we are open every day in October so our visitors can take full advantage of this wonderful season.

Please see our Events Page for further details about ‘What’s On’ here at Bodenham throughout the seasons.

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.
