It’s the most magical time of the year, and Ashridge House is delighted to launch The Enchanted Woodland Walk. Following the sell-out success last year, we will once again illuminate the beautiful private grounds this Christmas. This year the illuminations will be even more spectacular as we have sprinkled a little fairy dust and created a world of wonder for you to enjoy in our glorious gardens.

The event offers guests the perfect woodland escape, sharing some much-needed festive fun. As the light falls, see the magical light installations bring the sparkling gardens and grounds to life;
The Enchanted Woodland Walk via the Italian Gardens entrance and follow the trail to our  illuminated wonderland. 


Ashridge House Head Chef Paul Patterson and his talented team have created an in-house delicious dining experience for you before you venture outside for The Enchanted Woodland Walk. Enjoy dinner in a beautiful heritage room in the house with a special two course set menu served at 7pm for a truly Christmas filled experience prior to entering our magical gardens at 8.30pm.
