The settlement lies west of the A3095 road, south of the Bracknell Northern Distributor Road "Harvest Ride" and is approximately 0.75 miles (1.21 km) north of Bracknell town centre.
It takes its name from "Quelm Lane", an ancient thoroughfare that runs north-south through the development. "Quelm" is thought to mean "gibbet" and may be derived from the Old English cwelm, cwealm meaning 'death, murder, slaughter'.
