Ancient common once owned by King Harold and William the Conqueror.
Take a stroll around the all-weather circular walk, discover sunny glades and colourful berries, and a perfect picnic spot surrounded by birds of all kinds.
From building a den to spotting birds and butterflies, there are plenty of things for all the family to see and do on this gentle trail around Holmwood Common.
Holmwood Common is at the heart of the local community and is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by all. It’s just off the A24 (south of Dorking), so why not break a car journey south to the coast with a stop? Stretch your legs and explore...
Dappled woodland and sunny clearings greet you – beautiful countryside for walking, horse riding and cycling. The common is fairly flat and ideal for families to explore, but it can be wet underfoot. Great fun though for kids who like squelching in mud with their brightly coloured wellies.
The common is home to much of our well-known British wildlife. In the warmer months, dragonflies hover above the ponds and amphibians live in the dark pools. The air is filled with birdsong and colourful butterflies flutter from one bright flower to another.
Visit in autumn and walk beneath our golden trees. Discover an amazing collection of fungi – the weird, the beautiful and the ugly.
