Situated between Reading and Oxford on the borders of Oxfordshire and Berkshire lies the picturesque village of Goring on Thames, nestling on the bank of the river opposite the village of Streatley in the ‘Goring Gap', an historic crossing point of the Thames where the ancient Ridgeway Path comes down from the Berkshire Downlands to meet the river and then onto the Chiltern Hills continuing eventually on the Icknield Way into East Anglia. The surrounding countryside is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty' and the centres of both Goring and Streatley are now ‘Conservation Areas', thus preserving the many notable period properties, some of which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries.
Goring offers a good range of amenities, including shops, library, modern health centre, dentist, several traditional inns and restaurants, Boutique hotel, churches of several denominations and an excellent primary school with a wide range of private and state schools in the local area. Importantly the village boasts a mainline railway station which provides excellent commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. There are also good road communications to the surrounding towns and both the M4 and M40 motorway networks.
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.
