Train Ticketing from Bruges to Delft

I will be travelling from Bruges to Delft on Wednesday, June 17th, with stops in Antwerp, Kalmthout (at the Kalmthout Arboretum), and Rotterdam. The exact itinerary is as follows:
8:57 AM Leave Bruges for Antwerp
10:30 AM Arrive in Antwerp and take self-guided city walk, including Botanical Garden and Cathedral of Our Lady
12:23 PM Leave Antwerp for Arboretum Kalmthout
12:44 PM Arrive at Arboretum Kalmthout
2:19 PM Leave Arboretum Kalmthout for Rotterdam
3:19 PM Arrive in Rotterdam

4:00 PM Visit Trompenburg Tuinen and Arboretum
5:00 PM Leave Rotterdam for Delft
5:15 PM Arrive in Delft

How many rail tickets do I need to buy for this journey? Can they all be purchased at the Bruges station?

How many people in your party and are there any other trips you will take in Belgium before this? It might be worth your while to buy the Belgian rail pass, which covers 10 rail trips within the country. More than one person can use the pass at the same time. It won't, however, cover your further excursion in the Netherlands.

"Can they all be purchased at the Bruges station?" If you go with the pass, yes, you can buy it there. You can buy an international ticket that takes you to Rotterdam, but you won't be able to buy the tickets for the trains within the Netherlands in Belgium.

Thank you for your reply Tom.

So far it is only me travelling, and although I will be making 10 trips by rail in Belgium, I have calculated the total cost of these 10 trips to be just over 57 Euros so it may not make sense to buy the rail pass for 76 Euros.

So I would still like to know whether I can purchase one ticket in Bruges that entitles me to break up my journey to Rotterdam with stopovers on the same day in Antwerp and Kalmthout.
