Easy, level walks on paths with good surfaces and no stiles, gates or other obstructions. The National Trust Ashridge Estate is a glorious area of ancient woodland and downland. It is a place to get away from it all and enjoy tranquillity and wildlife. There are bluebells in late April and early May, deer, birds and other wildlife. It's also a great place to take the children to let off steam with plenty of space to run around and play away from traffic.
There is a 1km circular route around Medleys Meadow and a 2km linear route. Both start from the National Trust Ashridge Estate Visitor Centre at the Bridgewater Monument. The routes pass Pitstone Common, one of 200 commons in the Chilterns which all contain centuries of local history within them. The walks are likely to be suitable for people with impaired mobility and users of wheelchairs, mobility scooters and pushchairs.
