The Great British Countryside: A Perfect Home In The Heart Of Hambleden

Nestled between Henley on Thames and Marlow, right in the heart of the Chiltern Valleys, lies the picture-postcard village of Hambleden.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as Hanbledene, Hambleden is truly unique. The medieval timber-framed buildings reflect its peaceful woodland setting, making Hambleden the epitome of a traditional English village.

Hambleden is an unspoilt village made up of picturesque brick and flint cottages which echo the areas rich history. Surrounded by rolling hills, tranquil woodland and winding streets, the village offers an ideal location to raise a family or enjoy retirement.

However, far from being unheard of, this seemingly sleepy village has been a popular destination for many Hollywood film studios. Motion pictures such as, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Sleepy Hollow and Band of Brothers have utilised this idyllic setting to create unforgettable scenes within their films.

Home to Old Luxters Ale, Hambleden was also the home of William Henry Smith, who founded WH Smiths in 1891 and is now resting in the village church.

Here at Bonds Estate Agents we are incredibly excited to offer a beautifully unique, four bedroom period barn conversion which is located in the heart of this picturesque setting.
