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.

Visited the NT centre by the monument for a walk (with baby buggy), a picnic on the grass and a visit to the tea room. All in all, a very nice experience indeed. Very good cakes and large portions! Friendly service :)

As a recreational walker this place is fab so many different routes to take and plenty of space for kids to run about. Cafe kiosk at the information centre offers lots... More

When everyone needs some peace quiet and appreciate what beautiful contryside we have on our doorsteps, then this is the place to go. Lots of wonderful walks, well maintained woodland and loads of wildlife to see, birds, deers, badgers, foxes and much more. The monument area can be a bit offputting during the summer when it's rammed with cars. But... More

Plenty of different walks to do around and through the estate, we did one that takes you Ivinghoe Beacon, which is a 6.5 mile round trip that took about 2.5 hours, definitely worth a visit if nearby.

5,000 acres of beautiful countryside with ancient trees, gentle meadows and rare chalk grassland. There are stunning views wherever you go, looking down on adjacent farms and the Chiltern Hills. There is an independant cafe and a National Trust visitor centre with a lovely NT shop to browse in. You could make dozens of visits and take an entirely different... More

A beautiful estate with acres of superb woodland to wander through. A small shop and restaurant to satisfy those who want a souvenir and to fill an empty stomach after a long stroll. To finish off we had to slow down exiting the estate as a large stag ran across the road in front of us. A look into the... More
