Whyteleafe is a village on the narrow facing slopes of a dry valley of the North Downs in Surrey, England in the District of Tandridge. It has three railway stations (on two parallel lines) and a commercial area. Four streets in Whyteleafe are partly inside the southern edge of the London Borough of Croydon. Neighbouring villages and towns include Woldingham, Caterham, Coulsdon, Warlingham, and Kenley. To the west are Kenley airfield, Kenley Common (owned by the Corporation), Coxes Wood, and Blize Wood.

An urban and suburban area of equal contribution [to Chaldon] between the two merged areas [Caterham and Woldingham] finally became a civil parish after the area's abolition [in 1974]. Whyteleafe already had its own railway station and church; it was identifiable as a village throughout the district's duration.
