Worcestershire’s Hidden Garden
Meander through the beauty, peace and tranquility of Bodenham……
An oasis of plantations, pools and avenues beautifully landscaped including over 3000 species of trees and shrubs from all over the world. Each season bringing a beauty of its own…
Bodenham serves fabulous home produced food from 12 noon – 2pm. Our daily hot roasts include our own Herefordshire beef, lamb and pork, plus you will always find a superb collection of delicious home made cakes and scones! Booking is advised as we get extremely busy!
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.

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.
