Overview

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.

Lovely open spaces, and wooded areas alike! Whether you bring the children for hide and seek, picnics, or bring the dogs for a good romp, there are acres to explore! Bluebells, peace and quiet, and beautiful wild life. What's not to like?

We find this open space wonderful for dog walks especially off the lead! The kids get to splash about and tire themselves out and the dog too! Beautiful location.

Lovely woodlands, great place to take the dogs and kids for a breath of fresh air and stretch the legs. Big trees and all in its natural, unruly state! Good pathways, flat and easy near the visitors centre

Yes off course! On or off the leash is acceptable. The area is big and you and the dog can walk miles.
