Stick to the path

Ashridge is visited by a wide variery of people so to ensure everyone has an enjoyable visit, please use only the designated bridle paths and marked cycle trails. Cycling off the designated paths can spoil other visitors’ enjoyment of the estate. It also causes erosion and ground compaction. Compacted ground prevents rare and delicate plants from growing in the woods at Ashridge.  Please ride carefully and always give way to walkers and horse riders.
