The Estate

Culden Faw Estate comprises some 3,500 acres of mature beech woods, rolling pastures, parkland and unspoilt chalk valleys.

The Estate was formed by the amalgamation of Culham Estate, Hambleden Estate and Henley Park, Fawley and its impressive history is documented back as far as the Doomsday Book.

Today the Estate is run on a commercial basis, with its property portfolio including both Hambleden Village Stores & Post Office and the Stag and Huntsman Inn, land and farming interests, a forestry business, sporting activities as well as a venue for diverse events and outdoor activities, Culden Faw has a lot to offer.

The Estate is split by the River Thames. However, it is possible to walk from the north of the estate, Hambleden, to the south of the Estate, Culham, via The Hambleden Lock at Mill End.

Hambleden Village

Nestled into the Chiltern Hills, between Henley and Marlow and just up from the River Thames, Hambleden village can only be described as quintessentially English.

Hambleden is a picture-postcard village of timber, brick and flint cottages, unspoilt and sitting comfortably in the landscape from which it was built.

The buildings reflect the local geology and resources. Medieval timber-framing is unsurprising amid so much woodland, but much of the character comes from the use of brick and flints.
