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, post office, 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
Croft Road is a quiet tree lined road in the favoured central part of the village located within easy walking distance of the High Street, river and station. The road comprises mainly older individual character properties set in mature gardens all of which adds considerably to the privacy and seclusion of the immediate environment. Close by are footpaths down to The River Thames.
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.
