Wash Water is a village in Berkshire, England, and part of the civil parish of Enborne. The settlement lies adjacent to the A34 road (Newbury Bypass), and is located approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) south-west of Newbury.

Locals claim the origin of the village name is after the spot on the River Enborne where women washed the troops' clothes during the 1st Battle of Newbury in the English Civil War.

Village facilities include Wood Pecker Inn.
