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.

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.

Throughout December we invite you to visit our magical family event – Bodenham’s Nativity Trail – follow the stars around the Arboretum, before reaching the ‘live’ Nativity Scene in the farmyard barns, complete with our family of donkeys.

Please see our ‘What’s On’ section for more details of events throughout the winter season.

Tips to help make your real Christmas tree last...
Keep it outside or in a cool place for as long as possible before moving it inside....
When you're ready to decorate it, chop a couple of centimetres off the stump and put it in water straightaway...
Water it every day - they drink lots - and try to position it away from radiators and open fires as Christmas trees don't like heat....
Always turn your Christmas tree lights off before watering and going to bed!

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.
