About Frilsham

Along the valley of the Pang lies Frilsham, a small West Berkshire hamlet surrounded by woods and meadows.  As you approach the village from the east, through Frilsham Common and along tree lined 'Coach Road Hill' , there is a clearing in the woods with a football pitch and a hall, “the club room”, which provides a focal point for the community.

If you are a visitor, don't be too worried if you don't find a street sign telling you that you have arrived in Frilsham.  There isn't one, but once you find the phone box (housing the defibrillator) at the top of Beechfield Lane you've arrived in the centre of the village.

Looking west of the village across striking views of rolling countryside, is St Frideswide's church, named after Princess Frideswide (and one of just three churches in the country named after this saint).


Frilsham is in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a unique and spectacular landscape that includes tranquil open downland, ancient woodland and chalk streams in the centre of southern England.  North Wessex Downs website

Many local amenities for the 300 Frilsham residents (school, village shop, hairdressers, garage and cafe) are provided at the neighbouring village of Yattendon, which is just a mile away.  The market town of Newbury is only 7 miles away.
