Burnham Green is a small hamlet, located between the villages of Datchworth, Tewin and Digswell in the heart of Hertfordshire. Located at an altitude of 125 meters above sea level at the top of a hill overlooking the surrounding villages, it can be a very breezy spot, particularly when the wind is in the East or North! Looking due East, Burnham Green is said to be the highest point until you encounter the Ural mountains in Russia.

The village has a good pub Restaurant, The White Horse. It also has an occasional venue called Burnham House Venue (formerly called the Belmont, but better known as The Duck) as well as the Coltsfoot Retreat. Both White Horse and Coltsfoot each offer a choice of local and more exotic dishes. In addition, the village benefits from a shop and a small, well appointed Village Hall from which the Post Office operates two days a week. It doubles as a tea room on Friday mornings (9:30 - 1pm) when you can have a cup of tea and visit the Post Office at once!
There is a bus service south into Welwyn / Welwyn Garden City and East into Hertford. The local Railway station is at Welwyn North only a mile or so to the South.
Local primary schools are at Datchworth and Tewin, Local Churches are at Datchworth (All Saints) and Tewin (St Peters), both part of the Welwyn Villages team.
