About Bedgebury Park

country estate

Dedicated to your peace of mind

Bedgebury Park is a country estate located in the heart of the Kent countryside.

Encompassing 12 acres of beautiful English woodland, Bedgebury is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The estate is adjacent to the renowned Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest.

The picturesque estate has properties available to rent, forest yoga, a wellness retreat and plenty of space to unwind and relax.

Our country park is a great place to stay in Kent. If you are someone who loves self catering holidays and wants the whole house to yourself, then our farmhouse is a great choice.

Alternatively, if you looking for something small and cosy then why not try one of our luxury lodges? All our holiday lodges are self contained with their own private entrance and private garden out front.

The Bedgebury Park country estate is also a holistic retreat.

The owner

Gabriella Atkinson, owner of Bedgebury Park Holiday Accommodation and Wellness retreat.

This picturesque and tranquil land is owned and operated by Gabriella Atkinson, who purchased her section in December 2009. At the time it included parkland and equestrian facilities. Gabriella grew up in the hotel and hospitality industry and it was always her dream to build a tourism business centred around horses and holiday accommodation.

Managing such a huge area of parkland soon became too much, so much of it was sold off in 2020.

Running the equestrian centre, although great fun, was also very stressful. The stress would have consumed her if not for the ability to wander off into her woodland estate and indulge herself in forest bathing and yoga. This not only helped to de-stress, but also clear her mind and focus on what is important in life.  

As her life took a more holistic direction, after deciding to sell the parkland, she has put more focus on the luxury accommodation side of things, and expanded her wellness and holistic services.

A new direction
