Goring-on-Thames lies serenely in the beautiful Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire and the Berkshire Downlands opposite above the village of Streatley, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
In 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire Village of the Year’ and also the coveted ‘South of England’ title. Local amenities include a super primary school, an excellent range of interesting shops and restaurants, together with a riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist and library. Importantly, a mainline railway station provides fast commuter services to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. The area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of state and private schooling.
In addition to having well revered and outstanding local state primary and secondary schooling, including a primary school within Goring-on-Thames itself, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; Cranford House School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School, St Andrews Preparatory School, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Brockhurst & Marlston House, Downe House, Rupert House School, Shiplake College, The Abbey School, Bradfield College, The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, Abingdon Preparatory School, Radley College, and St Helen & St Katharine.
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 to Goring is the Swan at Streatley, a luxury 4 star riverside hotel with adjoining Coppa Club and leisure and fitness facilities.
Elvendon Road is approached off the Wallingford Road and leads out of the village in an Easterly direction, winding up through the scenic Elvendon Valley passing the Grade I Listed Elvendon Priory with private, Estate owned farmland and woodland on each side. The Primary School and a local Shop are in close proximity the former having easy off road access via Bourdillon Field and the main High Street and Station are also within easy reach.
The tree lined road is known for its abundance of spring flowers especially bluebells and for the chestnut trees which extend along part of the road as it climbs up to Goring Heath and Woodcote. Many footpaths and bridle ways give access over this delightful area of unspoilt countryside.
Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services have commenced from Reading, with the full service scheduled to commence in 2021, which together with the completed electrification of the line has significantly improved travelling times to East and West destinations.
