Local information

  • Situated in scenic countryside designated an ‘A.O.N.B' and set between the small village of Lower Basildon and Streatley on Thames at the foot of the Berkshire Downlands, overlooking the Thames Valley and the Chilterns on the Oxfordshire side of the river. This is a walker's paradise.
  • Comprehensive everyday amenities and facilities including shops, banks, health centres, and libraries are available at Goring on Thames and Pangbourne with both villages also having mainline stations providing fast commuter services to Reading and up to London (Paddington in well under the hour). Road communications are also excellent with Reading, Oxford and Newbury all easily accessible, as are the M4 & M40 motorways. There are excellent local primary schools at Streatley and Upper Basildon.
  • 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.
  • In addition to having well revered and outstanding local state primary and secondary schools, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note: Cranford House School; The Oratory Preparatory and senior Schools; Moulsford Preparatory School; St Andrews Preparatory School; Pangbourne College; Brockhurst & Marlston House; Downe House; Rupert House School; Shiplake College; The Abbey Schools; Bradfield College; The Manor Preparatory School; Abingdon Preparatory and senior Schools; Radley College; and St Helen & St Katharine.
  • On the edge of Lower Basildon stands the historic Grade I Listed Basildon Park, now owned by the National Trust and open to the public, as is Beale Park, which extends along the banks of the river with its many exotic animals and birds, huge play area, lake and miniature railway. Near the river in Church Lane is the historic 13th century Parish Church of St Bartholomew also Grade I Listed.
  • Streatley-on-Thames, within walking distance on the Berkshire side of the river, is another picturesque village surrounded by hills and woodland now mainly owned by the National Trust. Overlooking the lock and weir, and the picturesque bridges crossing into Goring, is the recently renovated, luxury 4-star, riverside ‘Swan at Streatley' hotel, offering facilities including the Coppa Club, leisure, well-being and fitness.
  • Across the river, the larger village of Goring-on-Thames offers a wide range of amenities and facilities including shops, a modern health centre, traditional inns, a hotel, library, dentist, and importantly, a main line railway station providing excellent commuter services to Oxford, Reading and London (Paddington).
