This common will be familiar to those who use the Nettlebed to Reading road. The open spaces of the common are found close to the main road with the more wooded areas to the west. A shallow valley across the middle of the common gives some variety and there are several pleasant houses backing on to the area. Peppard Common covers 22.7 hectares and is one of the six commons managed by the Nettlebed and District Commons Conservators.
The open areas of grass and some quiet access roads offer good access for all visitors although care is needed when there is traffic about. Easy parking and close proximity to a main road make this an easy common to find and there are nearby pubs for refreshment.
