Some of the favourite places to stop at along your pedalling travels are the Ashridge Discovery Centre and the cafe to grab a bite to eat after you’ve no doubt worked up quite an appetite.

At this exquisite National Trust destination there is so much to do and see you won’t be spoilt for choice. There is the opportunity to gaze at the flurry of butterflies, just as dazzling a display as the vibrant orchids, along the Ridgeway National Trail, and be sure to be on the lookout for woodpeckers in the Ashridge Woods. However, you may hear them first!

You may see a few deer darting among the trees as well, and you can brush up on some learning while identifying the varying trees and fungi species as well.

You can end the exciting visit to National Trust’s Ashridge Estate with a stop off at the Pitstone Hill and Windmill. The windmill itself is in fact one of the earliest erected in 1627. This may be a perfect place for a picnic under the sunny blue skies.
