Whitchurch Hill is a quiet, hilltop village lying some 450’ above sea level on the edge of the Chilterns Escarpment close to the Thames Valley approximately 2 miles from Pangbourne on Thames with the surrounding countryside designated an “A.O.N.B. “

Traditional timbered and thatched cottages overlook the village green as does the parish church of St John and there are many other period properties reflecting the differing architectural styles through the ages, which essentially form the character and provenance of this unspoilt rural community historically based on agriculture and farming. In Hill Bottom on the Northern edge of the village, is located the well known Sun Inn, a Brakspear Pub which has a good reputation for food.

At the bottom of the hill is the separate village of Whitchurch on Thames lying opposite the village of Pangbourne, and which boasts a highly rated Primary School and 2 popular Inns.

Pangbourne on the Berkshire side of the River offers excellent shopping facilities including a supermarket as well as a wide range of amenities including a mainline railway station with frequent commuter services to Reading and London (Paddington well under the hour).  There are good road communications particularly for Reading, Henley on Thames, Oxford, Newbury and both the M40 and M4 motorway networks.


The Old Well Cottage is a charming period cottage dating from the Victorian era, in a tranquil rural setting, enjoying attractive and peaceful outlooks from each room. The Cottage has appealing red brick elevations under a pitched slate tile roof, with original covered porch.

Internally the characterful accommodation is flexibly arranged, with an entrance lobby leading to the Kitchen & Sitting Room with open fire, beyond which is a Dining Room with fireplace, Utility/Boot Room, Cloakroom and large Amdega Conservatory enjoying views over the gardens. To the first floor are three bedrooms, the master being particularly spacious, running the full width of the cottage, and a family Bathroom. Tastefully presented, the cottage displays a wealth of character and charm throughout, in a simply delightful setting.

The Cottage sits well back from the lane, with a wide frontage of mature hedging providing a good degree of privacy, with 5 bar gate leading into the deep private front garden, mainly laid to lawn, and leading up to the front porch. To the right hand side of the plot, double timber gates open onto a gravelled parking area.

The delightful gardens face South and West, and are generous in size, extending mainly to the side of the Cottage, with split level lawns separated by a low stone wall, and with mature trees and shrubs adding interest throughout, with a greenhouse and working area to one side. A path runs around to the rear of the cottage, where there is a back door leading off the utility room.

Services: All mains services are connected. Central heating and hot water from gas fired boiler, located in the utility room.
