Hambrook is a village in South Gloucestershire, England, just outside the outskirts of the city of Bristol. It lies between the two larger communities of Winterbourne and Frenchay and is part of the Civil Parish of Winterbourne. Though Hambrook has become a commuter village with the M4 running through it, unlike many other villages that have been subsumed into Bristol the village has retained a largely peaceful, sparsely populated, semi-rural appearance despite its proximity to the City, the large town of Bradley Stoke and to the shopping centre at Cribbs Causeway.
Hambrook lies at the south-western foot of Winterbourne Hill. The village has woodlands and fields leading down from Winterbourne. The village's most distinctive feature is its common (or village green) which locals refer to as 'Hambrook' or 'Whiteshill Common' in light of its close proximity to the hamlet of Whiteshill. Site of the Civil Parish's war memorial and the village's primary school, with cosy cottages flanking it on either side and offering views of Winterbourne Hill, Hambrook Common makes a peaceful retreat. Cricket attracts crowds here in the summer months.
