Worcestershire’s Hidden Garden
Meander through the beauty, peace and tranquillity of Bodenham……
An oasis of plantations, pools and avenues beautifully landscaped including over 3000 species of trees and shrubs from all over the world.
'Autumn – the year’s last loveliest smile.' William Cullen Bryant.
Bodenham Arboretum is now open Wednesday – Sunday 11am – 5pm.
We serve our hot and cold lunches everyday 12noon – 2pm
Please note: a deposit is required for groups of 15 or more.
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.
Seasoned logs for your log burner or open fireplace delivered to your door by Transit Tipper or collect by prior arrangement.
Firewood logs are also available in bulk bags or net.
All our logs are split lengthways to ensure better burning and sawn to length.

Autumn brings with it a riot of leaf colour ranging from deep butter yellow through to orange, reds and crimsons as well as an abundance of berries. It’s a natural fireworks spectacular throughout the autumn months.
We are open every day in October so our visitors can take full advantage of this wonderful season!

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.
