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.

A great place to walk with dogs or otherwise, we've only been on dog walks but it also looks good for family outings and picnics. Really recommend visiting in autumn for the beautiful colours but it's lovely in all seasons.

This has got to be one of the best areas for walking and picnicking within 50 miles of London. I can't recall ever seeing any litter in the many thousands of acres and after 20+ years know there are walks we haven't covered yet. The cafe by the monument on the estate is terrific value.

The National Trust do an excellent job of preserving the land and making it accessible for all, with plenty of footpaths, suggested walks, and events throughout the year

We traveled up to Ashridge woods on a family walk and to look for chestnuts and to see the deer in the woods. We walked for two and a half hours on our adventure and our kids from 4 to 13 loved it. Unfortunately we arrived back at the very good cafe at the wrong time and the queue was... More

I wanted to take 3 little dogs for a walk and decided to go to Ashridge. It was vey busy on the approach and at the centre. Once into the woodland I really felt to be on my own. It was delightful.

I found Ashridge Estates to be very well cared for and lots to do for the entire family. The visitors center had everything you needed to hike maps to gifts, to kids activities. There are also numerous activities all year round the park for bikers, hikers, runners, and events. Many reason to come back again and again.
