I visit here as often as I can with my dog, Koda. I enjoy seeing the landscape during the changes of seasons. I always take some photos of our trip. As a seasoned visitor, I bring my own drinks, snacks and homemade sandwiches in my rucksack. I would never recommend the cafe as the food has not always been cooked... More

This is the second time I have taken my grandchildren to the Visitor Centre to do craft and trail activities and both have been thoroughly enjoyed. They particularly enjoyed making clay pots and walking in the woods after especially when they found some puddles!

This place is just beautiful to walk around in and to sort of lose yourself. The welcome center is also very well-run. There is a cafe and although no indoor seating is available, during the spring and summer months it can be very nice. It's a huge Estate with many different trails making for many peaceful walks.

This is beautiful place for a walk, especially when the woods are covered in bluebells. Disappear off the main tracks and you quickly find the crowds disappear and you'll have more chance of seeing the wildlife

I love walking through the woods, spotting birds and deer. Great for the kids, discovering unusual looking trees, dens and 'secret' paths. Stunning views. Great walks connecting up local villages, so could easily stop for refreshments in a nice country pub.

Go and visit the bluebell woods in Ashridge on the road between Ringshall and Ivinghoe beacon. Obviously when they're in flower!! Stunning. The photo attached doesn't really do it justice.

Title says it all really best area is Ivinghoe beacon I think and Dockey woods in the spring for bluebells. The cafe at the visitors centre is great for breakfast and lunch too Overall best place to go outdoors in Herts
