Location


The picturesque village of Streatley on Thames lies in a valley on the Berkshire side of the river between Reading and Oxford, facing Goring on the Oxfordshire side. The surrounding countryside is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Historically the location of the two villages is at a natural crossing point of the river, set between the Berkshire Downs and Chiltern Hills, known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ where the ancient Ridgeway path comes down to meet the river after its long journey across the Berkshire Downlands before continuing up onto the Chiltern Hills and the Icknield Way. The interesting High Street, which forms the central part of the village running down to the river and the bridge over to Goring, is now a ‘Conservation Area’ with a wealth of period properties many of considerable architectural merit including a thatched cottage, a beautiful William and Mary house and an Elizabethan Farmhouse, supposedly haunted by a lady in white.

In the village there is a parish church with Norman origins, a luxury riverside four star hotel, The Swan, which also offers a leisure and fitness club and at the top of the High Street is the Bull Inn being an old coaching inn from the era when the Royal Mail stopped en route from London to Oxford. There is also a prestigious Golf Club, established over one hundred years ago, set amidst beautiful rolling countryside, a nursery and a highly regarded Church of England primary school. The local area is extremely well catered for by private and state schools and is in the catchment area for the much acclaimed Downs secondary school in Compton.

Across the river, the larger village of Goring on Thames offers a wide range of amenities and facilities including shops, health centre, traditional inns, a hotel, library, dentist and importantly a main line railway station providing excellent commuter services to Oxford, Reading and up to London (Paddington) in under the hour.

Behind Streatley the ground rises steeply where the Berkshire Downlands meet the wide Thames Valley and from the top there are panoramic views far into Oxfordshire. The woodland and hills surrounding Streatley have been acquired in recent years by the National Trust and the extensive bridleways and footpaths are now open to the public.

The Bull Meadow is a small tucked away cul de sac approached off the bottom of “The Coombe” at the foot of Streatley Hill and comprises of a limited number of detached houses which have differing architectural styles and elevations. The road benefits from being away from traffic and from its close proximity to the village primary school, local shops, amenities and for superb rural walks.
