Goring Heath, lying a few miles east of Goring on Thames, is a scattered, rural Parish extending from the South Western edge of Woodcote, skirting round Whitchurch Hill and then South towards Mapledurham with the A329 Reading to Wallingford Road forming the perimeter along its eastern boundary. In the centre of the Parish are located the Alms houses built in a most pleasing aesthetic period architectural style, founded in 1726 by Henry Alnutt, a wealthy London barrister, and together with their historic Chapel are arranged around three sides of a cobbled courtyard. Whilst modernised in recent years, the Buildings have retained their authentic character appearance largely as they were in the 18th century, as has their unspoilt rural setting.
In addition to local well revered primary and secondary schools, locally the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of both state and private schooling, of particular note; The Oratory Preparatory, The Oratory, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, Pangbourne College, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
The village of Woodcote is within easy walking distance with access to local shops, health centre and Post Office. Goring on Thames is but a short drive, offering established shopping centres and a range of facilities including bank, modern health centres as well as restaurants, hotels and olde worlde inns. In addition, there are mainline train services from Goring & Streatley station to both Oxford and London, with London Paddington commutable within the hour.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in 2019 which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
