Campsite with walks nearby

Bedgebury Campsite has nearby walks - in fact there is a public footpath running through the campsite. 

This footpath is part of a six mile circular trail 'The Millenium Walk'.  From the campsite, you can walk to Goudhurst village along the Millennium walk path.  This will take about 30 minutes depending on your pace.  If you wish to continue through the village, you will be taken across the wonderful Weald of Kent landscape around Goudhurst, arriving back at the campsite about three hours later. 

The route is fairly well signposted, but it is advisable to purchase Ordnance Survey Explorer map 136.  Most of the route is on footpaths, some of which can be muddy and there is a small amount of road walking involved where you must be careful and keep an eye on children and dogs.

This route joins the High Weald landscape trail which goes north to Horsmonden and south to Cranbrook.

Bedgebury campsite close to Forest walks

Bedgebury Forest operated by Forestry England which is around 5 minutes' drive from Bedgebury Camping offers plenty of choice for walking for all abilities among its 2600 acre forest.   

On offer are challenging forest trails that take you through the National Collection of Conifers, or more gentle strolls where you can explore the forest as you please.  The Visitor Centre near the main car park will be able to offer information and recommendations on suitable walks.  There are WCs and a cafe on site also.  Parking fees apply.




Bewl Water Walking

Taking around 5 hours it is possible to walk round Bewl water. The track is 12½ miles and passes through some of the wealds most beautiful countryside including managed woodland and lush meadows. Part of the route circumnavigates the reservoir on quiet country lanes, and offers the opportunity to pop into local pubs for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Alternatively pack a picnic and enjoy the vistas from many of the vantage points along the way. On occasions the pathway can be muddy and suitable footwear is essential for both mountain bikers and walkers alike.

Stay at Bedgebury camping and spend time walking around the historic village of Goudhurst.
