Ashridge Estate is a 2,000 hectare (5,000 acres) area of the Chiltern Hills with beech and oak woodlands, commons and chalk downlands. These very different landscapes each support a rich variety of wildlife, including carpets of bluebells in spring, rare butterflies in summer and fallow deer that rut in autumn.
The best way to explore the Ashridge Estate is on foot or by bike. Miles of footpaths and bridleways give you plenty of space to explore, and if you drop into the visitor centre we’ll be happy to share our favourite routes with you. We also have mobility scooters if you aren't able to explore under your own steam. Also at the visitor centre is a shop where you can pick up some treats, an outdoor seating café and loos.
During warmer months we also open the Bridgewater Monument which for a small fee you can climb and admire the impressive views of the surrounding counties. On a clear day you may even be able to see London!
