Aston Abbotts lies about five miles northeast of Aylesbury, in central Buckinghamshire. From its elevated position around 468 ft above sea level it affords lovely views to west across the Vale of Aylesbury. To the South you can see the Chiltern Hills. These views are best appreciated from Lines Hill, on the Western fringe of the village. The population Census of 2021 recorded a population for Aston Abbotts of 426. These people occupy roughly 160 dwellings, mainly in the central village but some in remote outcrops and farms, including the hamlet of Burston. There are three roads into Aston Abbotts all of which are unclassified (in England an unclassified road is a relatively small road or a Lane). The road to the south connects Aston Abbotts to the main Aylesbury to Leighton Buzzard trunk road, the A418, which passes about half a mile from the village. The road to the north meanders past some farms until it reaches Cublington, a similarly sized village about a mile and a half away. The road that leads west out of the village winds down the steep Lines Hill (named after a farmer who farmed there some 200 years ago) past Burston and Lower Burston Farm, the site of an earlier Saxon settlement which was eventually absorbed into Aston Abbotts, until it reaches the pretty village of Weedon. Just beyond Weedon is the main trunk route from Aylesbury to Buckingham, the A413.
