Whilst Hambledown enjoys rural seclusion, peace and tranquillity, it is still within easy driving distance of the thriving commercial centres of Newbury and Reading, both providing excellent shopping and leisure, therefore making it a very convenient place to live. The M4 is just a few miles away and provides easy vehicular access to London and the West Country. Midgham train station is approximately 2 miles away, which gives fast train connections to Reading and London Paddington. Just along the A4 is Thatcham which boasts a fine selection of shops including a Waitrose supermarket.

Midgham has a village green and a village hall, and a short distance down Church Hill is The Coach & Horses pub which serves excellent food. The Angel Restaurant in Woolhampton has an excellent reputation and other pubs and restaurants in the area include The Bladebone at Chapel Row, The Boot Inn at Stanford Dingley, The Royal Oak at Yattendon, and The Pot Kiln at Frilsham, with many serving a range of award winning real ales from West Berkshire Brewery. There is a wonderful sporting complex open to public membership at Bradfield College with indoor tennis courts, squash, indoor swimming pool, fitness centre, etc. Bradfield College also has a 9 hole golf course and membership is available. This is fabulous riding country with lots of bridle paths.

Schools: The local area offers an excellent range of both private and state schools making it an ideal choice for families; these include primary schools in Woolhampton and St Finian`s in Cold Ash, Elstree, St Andrews, Marlston and Brockhurst and secondary schools at The Kennet, Downe House, Bradfield College, Pangbourne College Kendrick School for girls, and Reading School for boys.

Turn right onto the A4 towards Newbury, proceed along through Woolhampton and take the turning signposted Midgham ½ mile which is directly beside a telephone box, and as you turn right you will find the Coach and Horse pub on your left. This is Church Hill, proceed up the hill, passing Midgham Village Hall on your right, eventually passing the ancient church of St Matthews on your right.
