Exploring Esher Common and wandered here
May 2020
Walked from Esher Common to Prince's Coverts, I've always known it as Oxshott woods, so it was quite a surprise to find out it had a name. There's so much to explore here from the woodland to the more open sandy paths. Great for a walk on your own or with others. Great place to walk a dog or spend time with the family. I walked here during in lockdown on my daily exercise, there is plenty of space to step to one side so you can adhere to social distancing. Well worth a visit.

Bravo Crown Estates

So what occupies that large green expanse between Esher and Pachesham on the OS Map? Turns out it is Prince's Coverts a dog walkers paradise of serene managed woodlands owned and maintained by The Crown Estates. A huge surprise to find such a life-affirming space shoehorned between the major trunk routes, but unaffected by any of them. One advantage of the Covid lockdown has been the opportunity to identify new local walking spots and this is one we won't surrender in a hurry. Yesterday we walked for an hour and saw only one other person and - as he was jogging past - he didn'y impinge upon our enjoyment of this sylvan paradise for more than a ferw seconds. Love it.

Lovely quiet walking spot
Jan 2020 • Friends
Quite an expansive area of peace and quiet tucked just 5 mins from j9 of the M25. Not busy relative to other walking spots nearby such as Esher Common, Epsom/Ashtead Commons and Oxshott Heath - barely see anyone else around.

Winter walk

Unfortunately the Crown Estates have placed more emphasis on signage for horse riding permits than educating visitors about the host of trees and wildlife to be found on this stunning walk.

Join the Woodland Trust and see what a brilliant job they are doing to preserve are woodlands in the UK.

Going for a run
Apr 2017 • Couples
Great place for a quiet walk or run. But in wet weather some paths are very boggy because of the clay sub-soil. Not as busy with dog-walkers etc as Oxshott Heath.

This is a great woods for dog walking. Beautiful trees, both wide paths and narrow windy ones if you feel like being a bit of an explorer. The kids love it to - great autumn colours at the moment.
