Situated between Reading and Oxford on the border with 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 the Chiltern Hills and then continuing eventually on to 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 ‘Conservation Areas', thus preserving the many notable period properties, some of which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries.
Goring on Thames 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 well regarded private and state schools in the immediate local area. 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.
Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the recent electrification of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
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 into Goring is the luxury 4 star riverside hotel the Swan renowned for its leisure and fitness facilities and Coppa Club restaurant. Streatley also has a long established and renowned Golf Course.
West Way located off Springhill Road on the perimeter of the village, is a small cul-de-sac of modern houses of differing architectural design and elevations arranged in short staggered terraces, built in approximately 1965 by ‘Loverock'.
