Location


The picturesque village of Streatley on Thames lies in a wide valley on the Berkshire side of the river between Reading and Oxford, opposite Goring on the Oxfordshire bank with the surrounding countryside designated an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. Historically the two villages are located 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.

The village has a parish church with Norman origins, “The Swan” a luxury 4 star riverside hotel also offering 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 100 years ago, set amidst beautiful rolling countryside. Streatley has a highly rated Primary School with a separate Nursery and is also 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, modern health centre, traditional inns, choice of restaurants, Gourmet Deli, a riverside café, “Boutique” hotel, library, dentist and importantly a main line railway station providing excellent commuter services to Reading and up to London (Paddington) in under the hour and with connections for the future Crossrail services into central London.

Behind Streatley the ground rises steeply where the Berkshire Downlands meet the 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 there are extensive bridleways and footpaths open to the public.

N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in approx. 2019 which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to central London destinations.
