Hermitage is an attractive sizeable village situated about 4 miles north of Newbury. The village has a wide range of facilities including an infant and primary school, a well stocked post office shop and general stores, a petrol station and two public houses. In terms of secondary education Hermitage is within the highly regarded Downs School catchment area. A comprehensive road network is accessed by the A34 about 3 miles west of the village, serving the M4 and M3 motorways.

Approached via a five bar gate, the front drive is flanked by lawn on both sides and bordered by hedging and shrubbery which affords a good degree of seclusion.
