Bonfire Hill is the western end of the ridge of high ground that runs from the centre of Elstead through farmland to Ockley Common in the East, with beautiful views over the Surrey Hills that surround Elstead.
The hill dominates the centre of Elstead and is a popular spot for walking and picking blackberries. When there is snow on the ground there is a steep slope that is perfect for safe sledging, within easy reach of the village.
Three footpaths lead onto the hill from the village and another goes on through fields to Ockley Common. There are good views of the hill from the village, and of the village from the hill.
