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.

Get away from the visitor centre and loose the crowds, deer rut and bluebells a must in autumn and spring. Walk to Invinghoe Beacon for fantastic views. Connect to Greyhound in Aldbury or Bridgewater in Little Gaddesden for pub lunch. So many routes, possibilities.

Great food from the cafe which set us up for a stunning walk in the most amazing surroundings. Worth going up the monument when it's open, it offers fantastic views.

It’s very popular indeed at weekends, but it’s so big, you soon find yourself sone long (or short) peaceful and interesting walks. A great place to explore.
