The much prized village of Streatley on Thames occupies a scenic location at the foot of the Berkshire Downs where it meets the River Thames at an historic crossing point with the larger village of Goring on the opposite bank in Oxfordshire which has the Chiltern Hills behind, the area designated an ‘AONB’. There are excellent road communications with easy access to Reading, Oxford, Newbury, and the M4. Goring has a mainline station providing commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. Goring itself offers a wide selection of shops and services including a Bank, Health and Dental Surgeries, Riverside Bistro/Café, a Boutique Hotel and a range of Restaurants and Olde Worlde Inns.
Streatley also boasts a highly rated Primary School and is in the catchment area for the much acclaimed Downs School in Compton. There are also a notable variety of renowned Private Schools in the local area. On the Riverside is the 4 star Swan Hotel which has ‘fine dining’ and a Fitness/Leisure Club. Close by is the historic old market town of Wallingford granted a Charter in 1155 by Henry II, and just to the South is the bustling riverside village of Pangbourne where the author of ‘Wind in the Willows’, Kenneth Graham, lived.
