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.

Summertime at Bodenham…

The sound of Cuckoo, the diving of the Swallows and the Swifts….such events often herald the arrival of summer. Nature is both beautiful and fruitful…it bursts, peaks and allows animals and plants to reproduce. The Arboretum is green and lush, the pools are alive with frogs and toads, young birds are in abundance and the blossom is a sight to behold providing pollen to the bees and other insects. It’s time for some of our rarer trees to shine too.

It is a beautiful time to visit – whether you want to lose yourself on a wonderful woodland walk around the pools or soak up the sunshine beside our beautiful wild flower areas.

Enjoy a beautiful summer walk, and finish with tea and cake or a meal in our Visitor Centre, or even enjoy a picnic! The views are breathtaking and a warm welcome awaits! Please see our Events Page for further details about ‘What’s On’ here at Bodenham

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.
