Henley-on-Thames and Goring


Berkshire's beauties


Rated by The Times as one of the best places to live in the English countryside and a regular winner of RHS Britain in Bloom medals, Henley-on-Thames lends itself to sunny Summer’s day picnics and beautiful Spring walks along the riverside.

From craft markets to farmer’s markets, Henley also offers authentic and organic shopping within the heart of the town. If you’re looking to take things at a slower pace, browse Henley’s independent shops or enjoy a spot of afternoon tea with views of the river. 

Alternatively, for the more adventurous ones, there’s the opportunity to hop on a scheduled Thames cruise, hire a boat or even learn how to row. Additionally, for the art lovers, there’s a magnificent converted fire station gallery featuring paintings, tapestries, sculptures and photography.

Whether you’re travelling by bus, train or car, there’s a handful of ways to visit Henley. Please visit their website for more details.


The picturesque village of Goring is on the River Thames in South Oxfordshire and is just a 10-minute drive from the hotel. Goring is also famous for being home to George Michael’s stunning 16th century Oxfordshire abode. 

The village is best attributed for the ‘Goring Gap’ which sits within both The Chilterns and North Wessex Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Interestingly, the banks form the border of Oxfordshire and Berkshire, with either side of the bank sitting in each county. Featuring a handful of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, Goring-on-Thames is a lovely place to visit for a relaxing stroll. Goring directly faces the village of Streatley across the Thames, and the two villages are connected by Goring and Streatley Bridge and its beautiful lock and weir.
