The gateway to the Surrey Hills

Open the gate and step into a colourful mosaic of purple, greens and gold. All is quiet apart from the sounds of nature. Visit and discover why Hindhead Commons and the Devil’s Punch Bowl is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

You don’t have to go far to admire the views across the Punch Bowl or venture a bit further and discover the stunning scenery at Highcombe Edge and Gibbet Hill. Gibbet Hill is the second highest point in Surrey with views across the Weald.

This is good walking country with many footpaths to explore. Walk through shady woods or across open heathland with grazing cattle and wild ponies.

There’s plenty of space for family adventures and many lovely spots for picnics too. Delicious home cooked food is available from our café.

The Commons and Punch Bowl is home to an abundant wildlife and the area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Join us and immerse yourself in the natural world around you...
