  • Great for the children especially the Gruffalo trail. Good for walking and enjoying the countryside. 
  • Had never done this b4 and my boyfriend introduced me to it. The weather was lovely and the woodlands were beautiful. Had a lovely time and shall return next year. 
  • Had a very enjoyable day out. Kids loved it. Only complaint is would have is that some of the play areas were off limits for some reason. 
  • Excellent for families with kids or anyone interested in exploring the many trails and activities available. I visited with my wife and baby girl, my sister and her family and my parents. The kids had a run around in the play area before we all had lunch in the cafe which has a great selection of food and drink, there's also plenty of seating indoors and outside. We then went for a walk on the Stick Man Trail before finishing off with some tea and cake. There was plenty left to explore and we'll be back again. Price wise the entry was £12 per car and the cafe was very reasonably priced especially for the portion sizes.
  • We came to Bedgebury to do the Gruffalo orienteering course. It was a nice walk with different questions and clues that related to the Gruffalo story. Throughout the course there was a Gruffalos child and Gruffalo statue that were quite big. It was a fun activity that I would recommend for families. We purchased the guidebook/map for £1.50 and it was worth it. The gift shop should have had more items to buy because we would have bought more Gruffalo or Stick Man toys, books, etc if they had been available.
  • Great pinetum. Cycle routes were great, we went on the black and red routes, and then enjoyed a great lunch at the café. The whole place is very eco friendly and I always enjoy visiting!
  • This is great place to go with loads to do, especially for families. It is best to look at the website for all the facilities, but there are great bike tracks for all ages and abilities (with bike hire if needed), a café and picnic area, loads of play areas for the kids and a Go Ape adventure trail. I would highly recommend a visit and it is very easy to spend the whole day here!
  • Loved the Stickman trail through the pinetum and adventure playground was great. Will return to complete Gruffalo orienteering.
