What can you do at Bodenham Arboretum?

The epicentre of the arboretum is around a big pool where there are many rare and ornamental trees. There is lots to see at Bodenham and visitors are encouraged to visit as many areas of the arboretum as possible. There are farm animals and excellent vistas. You may be able to spot Herefordshire cattle, sheep and donkeys grazing in the fields.

Several miles of paths lead through acres of daffodils in early spring and later primroses and foxgloves line many of the woodland walks and plantations. There are brilliantly coloured azaleas and rhododendrons that begin in mid-spring. The Laburnum tunnel is one of the highlights for visitors in late May and early June.
