Springtime at Bodenham…

Spring never fails to delight us here at Bodenham, especially when it seems to have been a long winter! Even if the weather throws us a few surprises you can still enjoy impressive displays of spring flowering bulbs – from swathes of snowdrops, daffodils and narcissi, to the beautiful blossom of our magnolias and flowering cherries, whilst our woodland walks and plantations are lined with bluebells and foxgloves. It’s lambing and calving season on the Farm too, bringing even more new life and what better time to pop along for a visit than Easter?

Enjoy a beautiful Spring walk, and finish with tea and cake or a meal in our Visitor Centre! 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.
