The Ashridge Estate consists of 5,000 acres of woodland, chalk downlands and lush 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.

Dog walking, jogging, mountain biking - all great options, and a lovely feeling of being in the countryside just a few minutes’ drive outside of town. Visit the Brownlow cafe at the Ashridge monument - that’s great too.

A beautiful part of England not to be missed. Lots of walking trails for all abilities. You may even spot the local herd of deer if you are lucky. Plenty of parking but get there early to bag the best spot nearest to the cafe...More

What a lovely place to go for a country walk. Lots of different routes to take, all very well sign posted. The National Trust have made the place a very enjoyable area, and are very welcoming to talk to. Well worth a visit.
