The Loft at Grove Farmhouse is set in beautifully landscaped gardens surrounded by five acres of farmland where the owners maintain free range chickens and a small flock of Welsh halfbred sheep who may wish to say hello to you in the mornings! The Loft has been created within an oak framed barn and provides exceptionally comfortable accommodation for two people to escape to the countryside and enjoy uninterrupted views towards the Goring Gap.
There are numerous local attractions nearby, including National Trust properties at Basildon Park and Greys Court as well as The Ridgeway National trail and the Thames Pathway for keen walkers. Goring and Streatley are both within easy walking distance and offer a range of shops, restaurants and public houses. Oxford is approximately 30 minutes by train from Goring and there are regular trains to London Paddington with a journey time of under one hour.
