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.

The National trust look after the huge tower that is the focal point of the estate and costs 2.50 for adults and free for children under 7. The views from this... More

One of the most special places. Beautiful variety of trees and walls and wildlife. Particularly special early in the morning as the forest awakes :)

Walking with a dog in Ashridge park is easy and enjoyable. There are several routes to follow around The Monument. We chose to start on a one kilometre trail. The route said it was also suitable for mobility scooters. We were very lucky to see several of the Fallow deer that the park is known for. There is a cafe... More

Went here for a day out with the dog. It was very busy as it was a lovely sunny weekend but plenty of space, ample parking and different routes to walk around the estate so you can bump into as many or as few other people as you want! We had a picnic in the Bluebell Meadow (which unfortunately was... More

Honestly a marvelous place to have a great day! We had a picnic; the children ( 3 months old to 13) all had fun . We played football , used logs for goals, it was spotless, the cafe was friendly and the parking space abundant! And free, no entrance charge, nothing. The dads took some of the children for walks...

This is a lovely place to chill and relax. You can walk through the blue bell woods or you can picnic on the grass. A trip up the monument offers great views of the surrounding country side. There is also a nice cafe with outdoor seating that offer great food. The scones are to die for.

Beautiful place to walk around with a lovely and always busy cafe. Lots of parking and often trails for children or more recently the bluebell trail for everybody to enjoy. Watch out for the deer that may appear at any given moment!

A real "must see". Beautifully laid out and well maintained. Good facilities on site. Visit during Bluebell season and be prepared to be blown away. Loads of free parking and dogs are welcome

I have often visited the Ashridge Estate for walking along with a quick tea or coffee. However on my most recent visit I decided to see what else the café had to offer. I was there with my family (4 people in total) and we all ordered a breakfast of some description. As the food is all cooked to order... More

went with family and friends - first visit for most and won't be the last - a fantastic day out - just spend time walking through the woods or have a picnic in the paddock. Hint - drive the car up to the top before parking in the nearest space. Not great for disabled people.
