Definitely one for the little ones here. Cheap attraction at £13 per car. Extra for Go Ape, of course, but plenty for the youngsters to burn off some energy. Good walks. Nice and clean areas.

We decided to take the grandchildren to Go Ape at Bedgebury Pinetum as it was our Grandsons birthday party. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a great day out.

Yes the car park cost £13 (weekend rate) but that also includes the admission for all people in the car, which for us worked out as just over £3 per person - excellent value! We stayed for five hours - both toddler and six year...More
