The Ashridge Estate consists of 5,000 acres of woodland, chalk downlands and meadows. You can walk for miles and see a variety of wildlife such as Fallow deer and Muntjacs as well as the more common, foxes, badgers, squirrels etc. We have a well-stocked shop at our visitor centre, as well as toilets and a non-NT cafe, which serves hot meals all day long. If you need help when you arrive you will find a helpful volunteer on the reception desk who can point you in the right direction.

This is such a brilliant place. The extensive car park is free, the grounds are wooded and so easy to stroll around. Many walks and trails can be followed, dog walkers and horse riders have ample space while children can make or explore many dens. The pond is worth a look and there is an abundance of wildlife everywhere. The... More

We are regular visitors to Ashridge as it is such a lovely estate. It can get quite busy for parking (despite there being a lot of parking, which is free) but you never feel like it's overcrowded. There are numerous marked walks, many of which are suitable for pushchairs and motability vehicles. They also have a lovely little cafe (which... More

Ashridge Business School is a beautiful place to visit also when you are not an MBA student. You can walk the garden and surroundings, however, you are not allowed inside nor into the restaurants. However, if you can sneak into the reception are, go past the reception, up the little stairs and then take a look up into the ceiling.... More

Amazing free access to lovely wooded countryside. When you get here don't just flop on the floor by the edge of the car park. Please enjoy the lovely way marked pathways. If you are lucky you may see some wild deer. Always busy on weekends, very open during the week.

I visit here on Mondays and Fridays when I travel in the area for pleasure. I enjoy the drive from the motorway then turning off to the village of Ashridge, a world away from the hussle and bustle of busy life. This place is simply magnificient 'me' time. There is ample free parking at the visitor centre and clean toilets.... More

This is a large wooded country estate that is run by the national trust. There are plenty of places to sit and picnic, play games or wander in the woods. It is suitable for children and older adults. It is very popular and it can get quite crowded, but you can always find somewhere to go, if you're looking for... More

Went to see the bluebells, bu the true pleasure was meeting this wonderful lady who worked in the gift shop and had so much information about the place and the history. Will definitely go back to visit the house as well, which is only open to visitors in the summer months

Myself and partner went for a picnic. We really enjoyed ourselves, it was a glorious warm day! There was lots of areas to set up a picnic or spot. Beautiful scenery and a very calm and pretty surroundings. Lots of places to walk, cafe and toilets available. Good for family days out and group get togethers!

Everyone has there own favourite and secret walk around this estate, with so many paths and trails you can wonder for hours without bumping into anyone. The flora and forna are abundant as are the wildlife. Plenty of room for your 4 legged friends to run and sniff, take a picnic and enjoy this special place.
