Tadley or Thatcham?
You need a train line? If so, Aldermaston Wharf, Woolhampton, Theale etc are all on that route. If the preference is for a town, Theale might be an option in addition to your suggestions? Smaller places i would consider are Aldermaston Wharf, Woolhampton, or Bradfield Southend which arent always as expensive as some of the other villages (but the villages are generally more expensive than the towns).Posted 5 years ago
Live in Thatcham and as all places, good and bad. Been here 11 years now. Wife lived in Tadley ( we rib her about it, before I knew her) and doesnt anymore 😉Posted 5 years ago
Newbury is cheaper to live. Dont go near any homes in Station Road, lots of scum in there. Good schools including Kennet , which has a good ofstead etc. Ask away……….SilentSparkyMember
I live in Tadley, been here for 9 yrs or so. It seems to have a stigma from the past but I’ve never had any bother, has everything you need and a decent amount of riding from the door. If you don’t want to live in “Tadley” then look at Pamber or Burghurst. But in Tadley the Ex Awe 2 or 3 beds are decent size houses on a decent plot size and always seem to be in demand for when you move on.Posted 5 years ago
How about this
anyone in the know about the areas?Posted 5 years ago
Jn 12 is probably closer to Bradfield 😉 It all depends on what you want really. Judging by the links you put up, happy with a normal 3 bed semi. Rural location is nice , in a way, used to live in Tidmarsh. But in the winter found it just dark, always . Stumbling round with a torch. Glad I made the move to Thatcham for that reason alone and also more space as housing cheaper. Also street lighting means I can get out without a torch etc. Schools are good as well here. Which makes life easier for them as well for after school activities and friends. I am also still local to the Chilterns, Greenham and local areas for rides.Posted 5 years agoSilentSparkyMember
anagallis_arvensis, re: the £197k house that you linked up in Tadley, that road is used to cut across Tadley and cars don’t tend to stick to 30 and is a little busier than the side roads.
Slightly over budget, but something like this, good size 3 bed, nicer road:
Or if you find a two bed version of the above, theyr’e only slightly smaller and you can split the front bedroom into two 10×12 rooms (this is what we have done).Posted 5 years agogusamcMember

Bit of an ‘irritating’ place imho, it’s very handy for everything you’ll ever need (Reading,M4,trains etc etc) but actually has next to nothing itself and it’s extremely irritatingly laid out in that it has no centre and the ‘facilities’ are incredibly spreadout.Posted 5 years agorobbiehMember
Forget this one mate. Been in Thatcham 42yrs and a postie here for nearly 22. This house is on the edge of a not so nice estate and close by are alleys used by all to get to and from the town/pubs/etc. There are nice people and houses there but if you have the chance to avoid going there, do. Like Thrusty said, avoid the estate in station rd. called Kennet Heath…parts are like a ghetto sadly for the people that bought expensive houses there.Posted 5 years ago
