Wendens Ambo is a small village of approximately 400 people in Essex, England. Its unusual name originates from the joining of two villages, Great and Little Wenden, to form Wendens Ambo, meaning "both Wendens". Wendens Ambo is approximately two miles southwest of the market town of Saffron Walden, fifteen miles south of Cambridge and forty miles north of London.

The parish was part of the Saffron Walden Rural District from 1894 until 1974. Since 1974 it has been located in the Uttlesford District of Essex.
