Described in the book ‘Three Men in a Boat’ as ‘the most fairy-like little nook on the whole river’ Sonning is a pretty and quintessentially English village with cosy pubs such as ‘The Bull’ and a multitude of beautiful listed buildings. Set just 4.2 miles from Reading town centre and closer still to the commuter links provided at Twyford, with the station just 2 miles away. Along with riverside walks the village has excellent local schools with Reading Blue Coat set on the grounds of Holme Park, and state schools including Sonning Primary and The Piggott School (secondary).
