  • Dog walking, jogging, mountain biking - all great options, and a lovely feeling of being in the countryside just a few minutes’ drive outside of town. Visit the Brownlow cafe at the Ashridge monument ...  more »

  • We started with lovely coffee from the orange camper van who had two lovely people serving. The walks were wonderful and the view from the tower well worth the climb! Lunch from the cafe was scrummy and service was quick after ordering although the queue had been long. The hot chocolates looked really good and I will definitely have one on my next visit. 😀
  • Beautiful woodland suitable for adventure trails with the kids. We visited on a Saturday morning and the estate was popular with families and groups. Plenty of people walking and cycling, but it didn't feel in the least bit crowded. There is plenty of parking, but watch out as some places can get very muddy. The kids loved it too as they were able to climb some trees and hide in the woods and build dens. Worth climbing the monument for lovely views. We didn't use the facilities, but there are toilets and a cafĂ© and shop on site.
  • Beautiful place for walking with great woodlands and rolling countryside sorrounding the estate. It's easily accessible by car with plenty of parking and lots of signage directing you to Ashridge. Has a great cafĂ© serving lovely homemade cakes, hot drinks and refreshment, a small National Trust shop and a second hand bookshop with a small museum. This place is great for short family walks or longer hiking trips.
  • Lovely place to spend an afternoon. Parking is free and easy. We climbed the 172 of the tower which was great fun. The outside cafe is nice, but often a very long queue at the weekends.
  • Perfect for letting little ones charge about and explore. It has good disability access and the cafe has a decent variety of food though finding a seat in the outside eating area can be tricky as it's always busy ( there is no indoor eating area ).
