Bledlow Ridge is a village in the civil parish of Bledlow-cum-Saunderton in Buckinghamshire, England.[1][2] In 2004 the population was 940. It is situated in the Chiltern Hills, about 4 miles south-southwest of Princes Risborough and on the road between the High Wycombe and Chinnor.

Originally the hamlet was within the ecclesiastical parish of Bledlow. It gained separate status in 1868 when the new chapel, dedicated to St Paul, was constructed.

In common with other similar villages in the Chiltern Hills properties have become increasingly sought after due to its location and the improvement in rail and road connections to London. It has a recently refurbished village shop, The Country Store Kedai, and a local school, Bledlow Ridge School. Bledlow Ridge has a number of clubs including the youth club "Bridge", Bledlow Ridge Tennis Club, and Bledlow Ridge Cricket Club. As well as the corner shop, there is also an Equestrian Centre, children's playground, tennis courts and a cricket pitch. Yoesden, south of Chinnor Road, is a nature reserve managed by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust.
