Farnham Common

Farnham Common is a village in the parish of Farnham Royal situated on the edge of extensive heathland and bounded on the north-west by the famed beauty spot of Burnham Beeches.

The village itself has its own shopping centre with individual shops and small supermarkets, offices, restaurants, pubs, dental and doctors' surgeries and a public library. There are well-regarded schools in both Farnham Common and Farnham Royal, as well as large garden centres nearby.

Sports facilities include the Farnham Common Sports Club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009. The club runs both rugby and football teams, as well as offering facilities for tennis, cricket, hockey and squash. Farnham Park Playing Fields, operated by South Bucks District Council, provides many rugby and football pitches. The Farnham Park Golf Club, also owned and operated by South Bucks District Council, offers a popular and challenging 18-hole course for beginners and amateurs alike.

The Farnhams has a number of listed buildings, including St Mary’s Church, Mead Farmhouse, The Green Man, Dukes Head and Crown Public Houses, Hillside Cottages, the Farnham Pump, Yew Place and the War Memorial, Farnham Royal, which was granted Grade 11 status in 2002.

Clubs, societies and voluntary organisations are well supported by all members of the community, from youth groups to senior citizens, Rotary and the Lions, the WI and the villages’ own Farnhams Society.

Nearby, there are acres of open countryside and delightful walking in Burnham Beeches, a National Nature Reserve and a large area of ancient woodland open to the public. There are many miles of trails through the woodland with car parking making it available to everyone to enjoy.

These factors have helped make the Farnhams a popular place in which to live. As a result, the average price of a house in the parish is twice the South Bucks average.
