Location


The village of Upper Basildon sits on the edge of the Berkshire Downlands in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ with far reaching scenic countryside surrounding it on all sides.

The village itself offers a range of amenities including a parish church, community Post Office, highly regarded C of E primary school, and the Red Lion public house (recently voted one of the Independent newspaper’s top 50 country pubs). There is a splendid modern village hall, which has become the centre for a variety of community sports and activities with its adjoining sports field and tennis courts. A local bus company runs a limited service from the village to Pangbourne on Thames, Reading, Streatley on Thames and Goring on Thames, where a mainline railway station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour (25 minutes from Reading) can be found, in addition to the pending Cross Rail from Reading leading up to The City.

Bradfield College, the well-known Public School located some three miles from Upper Basildon, has excellent leisure, fitness and sports facilities including a large indoor swimming pool all of which are available for use by members of the public. The facilities also include squash, badminton courts, tennis courts, hockey and a 9-hole golf course.

In addition to the Basildon C of E primary school, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of both state and private schooling, of particular note; Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katherine.
