The civil parish is formed by the village of Cherry Burton and the hamlets of Gardham and High Gardham. According to the 2011 UK Census, Cherry Burton parish had a population of 1,392,[1] a reduction on the 2001 UK Census figure of 1,473.[2]

The village has a Costcutter shop which also acts as a post office and a village hall which holds live musical events and hosts an annual local pantomime. The village pub, The Bay Horse, holds events each week.

The village is one of the few in the UK awarded Fairtrade Village status for promoting fairtrade and local produce. It gained this status on 22 July 2003 and was the second village to do so.[3][4]
