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.
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.
The village sits within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It also has its own Conservation Area and a large number of listed buildings. Furthermore, since 1944, it has sat under a Restrictive Covenant benefiting the National Trust.Put together, this has meant that not a lot has changed appearance wise over the years which is what makes the village so unique and a popular destination for film crews and the large numbers of walkers who visit the area.
“Hambleden is one of, if not, the most beautiful villages in the Chilterns. What is even more remarkable is its close proximity to London.”
The estate owns the majority of residential properties within the village, all of which are let out on tenancies. We also own the Village Stores and Post Office as well as the Stag and Huntsman Inn, both of which sit firmly at the centre of the local community. No visit to Hambleden would be complete without a visit to one, if not both, of these locations.
