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. 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.

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 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.

In late 2019 / early 2020, Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrification of the line will significantly improve travelling times to The City and central London destinations generally.

Recognised as a thriving community there are a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups to suit most people. 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, situated on the opposite Berkshire bank 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.

Yew Tree Court lies in the central part of the village and is very accessible for Shops, Station and River. Approached off the top of Station Road where it meets Red Cross Road, the Road is a favoured tree fringed “cul de sac” comprising detached houses of contemporary architectural design and traditional construction built in 1984 by a well-respected local Builder, John Dexter who was renowned for his attention to detail and quality of building skills.

Ideally situated in the heart of this quintessentially English village, close to The River Thames, revered primary school, extensive High Street shops, and mainline railway station providing direct access to London in under the hour, 6 Yew Tree Court sits privately in its attractive mature walled gardens and grounds, enjoying a south westerly aspect, with delightful views afforded towards the hills of The Berkshire Downs.
