Hambleton means 'the settlement' (tun) 'on the crooked hill' (Hamble).
The village is situated on the Hambleton Peninsula, surrounded on three sides by Rutland Water. It is about three kilometres from the small market town of Oakham. There is a wonderful view across to Burley-on-the-hill from the north side of the village; and from the south, one can see across to the sailing club on the far shore. The track along the lakeside takes walkers and cyclists through bluebell woods (on conservation land), right round the peninsular, from one side of the village to the other.
The village of Hambleton is served by bus route 20B
