Getting There

A circular walk around Chobham Common, a beautiful nature reserve in Surrey. The walk follows the paths through the length of the common, giving you chance to enjoy views across the lowland heath and surrounding woodlands. A real favourite with dogs, with plenty of areas to run, paddle, play and explore. The walk follows heath paths which will be very muddy after heavy rain. There are no stiles or gates and the climbs and descents are very gradual and long. The final section of the walk follows a narrow path through thick gorse (shorts are not advised!) and over a narrow low sleeper bridge. At certain times of the year temporary electric fence/gates are installed to allow cattle to graze so take care with dogs within any of these enclosures. The common is fairly remote so there are no refreshment or toilet facilities anywhere on the route. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

The walk starts from the pay-and-display Staple Hill car park on the edge of Chobham Common. The car park is accessed from Staple Hill, just off the B386. The car park has a 2m height restriction barrier. The parking fee is payable by card or phone (not cash) and the cost is £2.60 for 2 hours. Approximate post code GU24 8TP.

Good clear paths - a little sandy in places. It was warm out there so we were v glad of the shady bits.

Absolutely huge area to explore! This route was only a 5k route but it gave us a taster of the area and how much more we could do on another occasion! It was very pretty with some views too highly recommend especially for a good sunset xx

The weather was great and scenery amazing. However when Parking it was disgusting the amount of litter thrown in the fields. Makes it such a bad experience. Also no signs so a bit confusing which way to go if you don’t know the area. I rated it low as the place felt dirty and also close up the road so not very quite or private. Lots of people too.

Lovely walk today. The dogs particularly enjoyed getting extremely muddy and smelly. Definitely the first real hint of spring when the sun was shining. A great spot for a walk only slightly spoilt but motorway noise in some spots.

Great secluded walk with some good views. Very muddy in places so wear good footwear. Our lab loved it especially the the watery bogs.
