Goring on Thames a location like no other


The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and Berkshire Downlands each overlooking the River as it flows downstream from Oxford to Reading, in an area of scenic landscape 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 won 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.


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.


In 2017/18 Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.

The village boasts an excellent range of shops and facilities together with Olde Worlde pubs, a highly regarded Bistro/Café, choice of restaurants, a Post Office, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services 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.

Bespoke Interiors


Designed and built with you in mind


Bloomsbury Lodge stands on the site of a former large village house which was built in the 1920s for the daughter of a wealthy local resident as a wedding present, and designed by a notable architect George Frederick Turner who originally studied under E. P Warren, and whose family still live in the village.


The New House continues the heritage and has an impressive appearance showing considerable flair and featuring numerous design features, it offers accommodation of exceptional size and proportion all superbly appointed and where the meticulous attention to detail and associated high quality can easily be evidenced as can the sophistication and functionality of the kitchen and bathroom designs, and the heating system.
