Rectory Cottage is a very pretty 4 bedroom period cottage set in this sought after Thameside village. The cottage is semi-detached and has benefited from a meticulous and tasteful refurbishment and modernisation programme in recent years with modern bathrooms and kitchen. The cottage is unusually spacious with lots of character.
Situated in Whitchurch-on-Thames, Rectory Cottage is only a few minutes' walk from the tremendous amenities that Pangbourne offers, including fast train connections to London Paddington, Reading and Oxford.
There is a south facing terrace which runs the length of the property on one side, with pretty high brick and flint walls surrounding it, giving privacy and making this area a natural suntrap for summer dining and entertaining.

The River Thames runs between the villages and has riverside meadows, part-owned by the National Trust, the Thames Path, a children's play area, tennis courts, football pitches, a bowling club and Pangbourne Adventure Dolphin centre offering canoeing and climbing instruction.
