The AreaTidmarsh

Tidmarsh is a small hamlet just a mile from the charming and quaint village of Pangbourne, full of character, with individual shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes situated on the River Thames, making it an ideal place to potter. There is a splendid ornate cast iron toll bridge spanning the Thames with Pangbourne to one side and Whitchurch on the other – this forms the county boundary between Berkshire and Oxfordshire. There are many activities within a few miles, including the Thames Path National Trail as well as National Trust Basildon Park and Beale Wildlife Park at Lower Basildon. Further upstream and only 5 miles away are the pretty and popular villages of Streatley and Goring either side of the Thames. The M4 at Junction 12 is only 4 miles away, which not only gives great access to Reading and London but on the Junction itself are some big retail outlets. Even closer to home in Theale village are some good local shops and just on the outskirts a very popular farm shop. Reading lies about 6 miles to the east, and is a large and vibrant University town on the rivers Thames and Kennet, offering comprehensive facilities.

Longbridge House, TidmarshAbout this home

Tucked away down a long track, in a quiet and private setting, is this beautiful property sitting on the banks of the River Pang. Longbridge House has the best of both worlds – it offers the perfect country escape whilst being completely accessible to the outside world. This charming period house believed to date from the 16th century has an outstanding contemporary extension which creates a wonderful family home. The house has been meticulously and tastefully renovated and extended, and showcases how best to combine the old with the new. The lovely gardens surround the house and are laid mainly to lawn, interspersed with trees and shrubs. There is a decked area to the rear of the house where you can sit and admire the romantic view of the river, the beautiful willows, and the water meadows beyond.
