About The Ashridge Estate
The Ashridge Estate is a 5,000 acre area of the Chilterns Hills. It is rich with beech and oak woodlands, commons and chalk downlands. These very different landscapes each support a variety of wildlife, including carpets of bluebells in spring, rare butterflies in summer and the fallow deer rut in autumn. Miles of footpaths and bridleways give you plenty of space to explore.
The National Trust have managed Ashridge since 1926 and it is still a working estate, continuing 3000 years of tradition. Discover more about the wildlife and the estate’s management in the visitor centre next to the Bridgewater monument, with an interactive discovery room. A wide range of activities and events for all the family take place throughout the year.
