We have walked here several times, and you do not run out of paths to explore. It is a wonderful open space, and has a cafe open daylight hours all the year round. If you're feeling a liitle more energetic you can go down into Aldbury nearby and have a meal at the pub there. It's easy to park and... More

Love the wildness of this place and if you're lucky, the appearance of herds of deer. The cafe near the monument has excellent hot food.

There is ample free parking along the main entrance road and allocated carpark. The visitor centre has an interesting book and gift shop for browsing. Toilets are located at the side of this centre. The cafe sells hot and cold snacks, a bbq area is often available over the busy weekends. There are numerous guided walks led by experienced ramblers.... More

It sounds as if you love Ashridge as much as we do and we share your opinion of the views from Ivinghoe Beacon - breathtaking indeed. You and Koda must be very fit to make that journey regularly. Will you be coming to the Christmas fair on Sunday 7th? There will be lots of interesting stalls to browse. We're sorry... More

Lots of fabulous walks in beautiful woodland and countryside and views to die for, especially if you manage the climb to the top of The Monument (owned by the National Trust so free to members). I think there are some areas which are suitable for wheelchairs, but it could be limited. It's a great place for children to run free.... More

I love Ashridge so much I volunteer there! It is a 5000 acre estate of ancient woodland, chalk downlands and huge meadows which were once commonland. It is rare to visit and not see fallow deer amongst the trees. It is THE place to repair an aching soul but not in school holidays!

An excellent place to go for a ramble with the kids or the dog,beautiful at this time of year with the trees in their autumnal suits. The cafe serves very good coffee and snacks for when you return with an appetite after your exertions.

The 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, high up in the Chilterns, provides beautiful walks both in glorious woods and open downland, suitable for adults and children - and dogs - of any age at any time of the year. As a bonus, there's the excellent National Trust approved café which offers a wide and changing range of good tasty food, from... More

We are so glad that you love the Ashridge Estate as much as we do. Walkers are enjoying the autumn colour, which is getting better day-by-day. Did you see the deer rut this year? It has been great, possibly because of the mild weather. More

Had a great mushroom risotto, followed by carrot cake. Yum! Nice things in the little shop. Beautiful walks. Impressed to see there are even special vehicles for disabled or elderly people to hire. A lovely way to spend an afternoon, for the whole family, or just in solitary contemplation.

We have visited Ashridge numerous times and have always had a fun time finding different routes through the forest. Lots of interesting woodland walks for us, children and dogs with a few geocaches scattered around if you are into that sort of thing. There is a very nice cafe and although always busy it is good value for money though... More

These are lovely woodlands, quite small and while tranquil you always feel like your near civilisation. The paths are good but the signage could be better as we got lost! There is plenty of parking (though watch pedestrians, bikes and horses) and the cafe/shop looked good though we didn't go there. I recommend a walk up the monument as you... More
