Stunning location.

Perfect for a ramble, picnic or somewhere to walk the dogs. So picturesque and easy to lose yourself in the greenery, one of my favourite places to spend a warm day.

There is lots to do if the weather is fine. Small shop and restaurant if weather poor. Plenty of den building and log to climb on. We live very local so its a great place that does not cost the earth.

This is a beautiful forest is a nation trust property with amazing views and even with the amount people walking the different walks it is very peaceful. I would highly recommend the walks at the end there is a café that produces good food.

We consider ourselves very lucky to live near this beautiful forest which is amazingly peaceful despite being near large settlements. If you are fortunate to visit it please take your litter home as our visit today was only marred by the sight of two plastic water bottles thrown away by thoughtless people.

The Ashridge estate has three partners - the Golf Course, the Conference Centre and the National Trust and together they have restored and enhanced what remains of this once mighty estate. Lancelot Capability Brown laid out the park including the wonderful Golden Valley, Humphrey Repton's hand can be seen within the formal gardens and apart from the rather unsightly modern... More

It's an amazing scenic drive within the estate with breathtaking views of wild dear grazing on the grounds and forest(felt like it) too. I wasn't surprised seeing cyclist park their vehicles and just cycle into the huge grounds. It's a great time out for your self or with a loved one/s.We drove through the estate and landed up at Berkhamstead

I may be a little prejudiced but living so near the National Trust Ashridge Estate makes me a very lucky person. Lots of wonderful walks and the scenery is beautiful. Just beside the monument is a fantastic cafe serving great food and I can certainly recommend their 'full English' after an early morning dog walk! Lots of volunteers help to... More

Tried twice to get to visit but thwarted by the very wet UK weather so missed the bluebells. Finally made it a month later and enjoyed a walk in the forest. What a wonderful place for young and old. Nice cafe with coffee and cream scones when you tire. Such natural beauty and so peaceful. I could keep coming back... More
