The village of Woodcote, which lies just off the Reading to Oxford Road, is situated in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty' surrounded by the scenic countryside of the Chilterns, with extensive beech woodlands and undulating fields. The village is some 500' (160 metres) above sea level and there are glorious far-reaching views from several parts of the village.
Originally a small community based on farming and the countryside, Woodcote has grown substantially, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, is now a thriving village with a good range of local amenities including Post Office stores, supermarket, nursery/garden centre, two public houses, modern health centre (recently enlarged and upgraded) and excellent education facilities with two toddler playgroups, primary and secondary schools.
Near the centre of the village is the Parish Church, which was rebuilt in 1846 in a Norman style on the site of the original Norman structure, with a few traces of original walling still surviving. Woodcote House, an historic country mansion built in the 1730s, now forms part of the Oratory School, standing in extensive park like grounds east of the main village. The Prep. School for the Oratory is situated nearby at Crays Pond.
A variety of local activities appealing to young and old are based in the Village Hall and nearby Community Centre and which are well publicised in the monthly village newspaper, the Woodcote Correspondent, circulated to all local residents.
Woodcote has good road communications with easy access for Reading, Henley, Oxford and the M40 and M4 networks. For rail commuters there are mainline stations locally at Pangbourne and Goring on Thames, as well as Reading, all providing fast services up to London (Paddington).
