Half term trail and craft

Head into the visitor centre to complete your craft before following our hedgehog-themed trail around the woods.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

One of Ashridge's hedgehogs has accidently woken up early from hibernation and has sleepily wandered outside of his home. Unfortunately, he is now lost in the woods. Follow the trail and help the hedgehog to find his way home. Along the way, learn more about other hibernating animals on the estate.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
