Coppett (sometimes 'Coppet') Hill Common is a Local Nature Reserve of over 100 hectares located in the parish of Goodrich near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire. It is a mix of woodland and open hillside with a very wide range of flora and fauna. Permissive paths give access to the reserve as well as offering marvellous views stretching from the Brecon Beacons to Clee Hill and the Malverns. The Reserve lies within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  

The Coppett Hill Common Trust owns and manages the Hill. It is a limited company founded in 1985, run by Directors who are elected annually by the Trust shareholders. Individual shareholders must live in the Parish of Goodrich and Welsh Bicknor and currently number just over 100 of the residents. Goodrich and Welsh Bicknor Parish Council and Herefordshire Council are also shareholders.
