Hambledon is a rural scattered village in the Waverley Borough of Surrey, south of Guildford. It is dominated by an area of fields and woodland, mostly south of the Greensand Ridge escarpment between Witley and Chiddingfold.

In the 16th century, part of its land was mined for iron ore. This became replaced by the 18th and 19th centuries by brickmaking. The population of the parish according to the UK census of 2011 was 805.
