Recognised as one of the most complete collections of conifers on one site anywhere in the world, Bedgebury is a centre for International conservation with lots to explore when spending the whole day out. Brave the heights of our leafy hideout in the garden of England and take in the jaw-dropping views of Kent's spectacular arboretum.
