The Stag and Huntsman is situated within Hambleden, a quintessential picture-postcard village nestled into the Chiltern Hills. 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.
As part of the Culden Faw estate, a number of walks are available. 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.
