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

If you go early evening or dusk you will see the dear moving about. If you... More

This is a lovely woodland area owned by the National Trust. Plenty of different walks to do - the kids and dogs love it. You may even see a few deer. Best part is - it's free!

Plenty of big space and walks at Ashridge. Free parking, national trust shop, toilets and cafe. Spend a day there with a picnic or a few hours doing a circular walk. Routes are shared with bikers so be aware of who else is around you. Scenery is amazing out to Dunstable downs. Brownlees do an amazing breakfast, lush cakes and... More

Well laid out walks - stay on the paths in some places as the off piste tracks can get very boggy. We return here many times - seeing deer at Christmas and in the snow is fantastic.

Beautiful place for a walk, we come often and the scenery is always changing with the seasons. Beautiful snow drops in winter and bluebells in spring plus lots of deer to try and spot on your walk. Highly recommended!

I have visited Ashridge Estate just once. Earlier on there was storms however we didn't experience them. It was 1 o'clock when we finally arrived to Ashridge, and it was beautiful. It was quite sunny, but in the woods the ground was sludgy with rain. However that didn't stop us so we walked further all around the wood. Afterwards we... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope you will return many times. We do close the Monument when it is wet as the steps get slippy and could be unsafe. More
