The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the scenic Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and the Berkshire Downlands as it flows from Oxford down to Reading, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘A.O.N.B.’ In 2009 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire village of the Year’ and also the coveted best in ‘South of England’ title.
This stretch of the River the longest between locks, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and is forever associated with Kenneth Graham’s immortal book “Wind in the Willows” as well as Jerome K Jerome’s book “Three Men in a Boat” which actually mentions Streatley in its narrative.
The village boasts an excellent range of shops and facilities together with Olde Worlde pubs, a highly regarded Bistro/Café, choice of restaurants, a Bank, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services up to London (Paddington). There is also easy access for the major local towns, including Oxford, Reading and Newbury, the M4 and M40 motorways, and for Heathrow.
Recognised as a thriving community there are a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups to suit most people.
There is a highly rated Primary school and in the local area are a first class choice of both state and private schools with ‘bus collections.
The central part of Goring is a ‘Conservation Area’ and has a wealth of interesting period properties many Listed being of significant architectural and historical interest.
Streatley on Thames, on the Berkshire side of the river, is another picturesque village surrounded by hills and woodlands now mainly owned by the National Trust. Fronting onto the river by the bridge crossing over to Goring is the luxury 4 star riverside hotel the Swan renowned for its fine cuisine and leisure and fitness facilities.
Gatehampton Road on the Southern edge of the village is a “no- through” road leading out into scenic countryside from where there are panoramic views of the surrounding Chilterns and Berkshire Downlands which face one another on either side of the Thames Valley as the River flows downstream towards Pangbourne.
This “ non-estate “ road comprises mainly individual detached properties, some dating back to just after the First World War, having good-sized garden plots. There is easy access to the railway station, primary school and for the High Street shops and amenities in the centre of the village. Sheepcot Playing Field and the Tennis Courts are also located in the road and there are numerous country and riverside walks close at hand to enjoy the amazing scenery.
