For intermediate or advanced riders, this has to be one of the most boring trail centres in the UK - which is a shame as it is on my doorstep and means I drive to Surrey Hills or Friston to ride most weekends. 
Bedgebury barely deserves a blue grading; certainly not a red so don't go there if you are an experienced rider looking for a fun ride. The opportunity to create something good has been wasted and the lack of features which are common in other trail centres demonstrate a real lack of riding experience by those responsible for managing the site.  The FC need to get some professional help here with trail design and build.

Good Points
Good for novice riders.
Bad Points
Don't go there for the jumps in the Bike Park as this was pulled down in Spring 2016 by the Forestry Commission who were seemingly unaware of its popularity. Don't expect to get any air on the trail either - there is not a single gap jump or tabletop on the entire single track. Another reviewer has commented that she does get air but I can only assume this is on a set of rollers - but they really are rollers, not jumps.
There is an online petition asking the FC to bring back the bike park and to put jumps on the trail - just search 'Bedgebury Petition' online if you want to sign it.

Car park is £12 at weekends, £10 weekdays.
