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. 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 dating from the 16th Century.

The ancient Ridgeway Path linking the West Country with East Anglia also runs through the village on its journey from the Berkshire Downs up on to the Chilterns. This stretch of the river the longest between locks, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and is forever associated with Kenneth Grahame’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 M40 and M4 motorways, the latter linking directly to Heathrow.

Recognised as a thriving community there are a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups to suit people of all age groups. 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.

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 spa and fitness facilities

Manor Road is generally regarded as the ‘premier’ residential location in Goring on Thames, situated within a few minutes walk of the central High Street shops, railway station and facilities as well as for the nearby riverside, and country walks. Wide and tree lined, it is a no through road with only local traffic and at the Southern end immediately adjoins fields and open countryside with footpaths leading directly down to the river itself and across fields to the Chilterns Escarpment  overlooking the “Goring Gap”. The larger impressive houses in the road date mainly from around the turn of the last century, reflecting the grandeur and wealth associated with the growth and importance of Goring at this time.

N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in approximately 2017, which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.

The building plot occupies a delightfully mature and private position in a premier road within this highly regarded village, which is situated on the banks of the River Thames, within scenic tree lined surroundings. The plot itself, approximately 0.18 of an acre in size, benefits from being within close walking distance of the mainline train station which provides direct access to London Paddington in under the hour, extensive village amenities, and superb schooling.
