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.
