Cookham Dean is the most rural of the three villages just north of Maidenhead in Berkshire that are collectively referred to as Cookham. This village lies on a rise heading west from Cookham Rise and Cookham and lies just south of Quarry Wood and Winter Hill. The village is built up around The Green, next to which is the Village Hall, a stone cross and The Sanctum on The Green Hotel. Within the village are Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Jolly Farmer pubs and a gastro pub called The Chequers Brasserie which is recommended for good food and wine.

Near to Cookham Deean is Cock Marsh which runs along the River Thames at the base of Winter Hill. This contains several ancient prehistoric burial mounds and is currently managed by the National Trust, which protect the area from development. Also nearby is is The Mount, the former home of Kenneth Grahame who wrote The Wind in the Willows. The house is now a school.
