Cuddington, a small village of approximately 600 inhabitants, is situated six miles from the County town of Aylesbury.
Cuddington's parish church with its Norman pillars has a list of vicars dating back to the 12th century, and the village also has a Methodist and a Baptist church.

Cuddington, however, is by no means without its own amenities; it has a village store with post office, a hairdresser's, two picturesque pubs and a playing field with club. A well-run village hall is the venue for many weekly activities. All groups in the village combine to organise an annual fete — always a very happy and successful occasion.
There are still a few farms in the parish, but most people work in the surrounding towns, with a few commuting to London. The village also has an increasing number of retired people.
