LOCATION
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 surrounding countryside designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’.


Traditionally timbered and thatched cottages overlook the village green and parish church of St Johns and there are many other period properties reflecting the differing architectural styles through the ages, which essentially form the character and history of this unspoilt rural community historically based on agriculture and farming.


At the bottom of the hill is the separate village of Whitchurch on Thames lying opposite to the village of Pangbourne on the Berkshire side of the river, and home to a well revered and outstanding primary school, and in the local area are a first class choice of both state and private schools with ‘bus collections


Pangbourne offers excellent shopping facilities as well as a wide range of amenities including a mainline railway station which has excellent commuter services to Reading and up to London (Paddington) in under the hour. There is a regular daily bus service to Reading via Pangbourne from Woodcote with good road communications, particularly for Reading and the M4 motorway.


In 2019 Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
