For a fun outing for all the family, explore the beautiful National Trust Ashridge Estate in the Chilterns.
Set in the heart of the Chilterns is National Trust site, Ashridge Estate. Boasting a huge area of woodlands and downland, it’s free to explore and a great place for cycling with the whole family. You can enjoy bluebells in the spring, beautiful golden colours in the autumn, or spot a fallow deer and other wildlife.
Ashridge is easy to get to from nearby towns such as Tring, Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead. Some of the routes are on-road but there are off-road options too.
Once you’re at Ashridge, there are plenty of route options using quiet roads, tracks and bridleways. There are five promoted routes of varying lengths that take in the best parts of the Estate. They all start from the Visitor Centre where there are toilets, refreshments and open grassy areas.
There are also lots of other bridleways to explore – just follow the blue arrows, but please be sensitive to the site and observe the signs to help protect this special place. More route ideas are available on our Routes page.
