A stunning National Trust park just a stone’s throw from Portobello Place

Just half an hour away from our home is the National Trust’s beautiful Ashridge Estate, a truly stunning 5,000-acre area of the Chiltern Hills with beech and oak woodlands, commons and chalk downlands – have you been before?

Here at Portobello Place care home, we love getting out and about, and we can't wait to start taking our residents to interesting places nearby – how lucky are we to have somewhere as stunning as the Ashridge Estate so close by?

We always enjoy seeing new places and doing new things, but there’s something special about the Ashridge Estate that keeps us going back time and time again – if you have never been, you must visit. And be sure to go back to see how it changes with the seasons, it really is beautiful whatever time of year you go.

We can’t wait to get out in our eye-catching Portobello Place minibus and start exploring the vast parkland. Give us a wave if you see us out and about!

We’re big fans of the Brownlow Café too, situated by the Bridgewater Monument – their scones are delicious. Hopefully we’ll be making another visit sometime soon.
