Over the years the village has seen little intrusive development, retaining much of its original peaceful charm. The historic Ridgeway Path runs through the centre of the village, having followed a route along the banks of the Thames from Goring continuing its journey up onto the Chilterns. The immediate local area has numerous footpaths and bridleways through the scenic surrounding countryside which is designated an “AONB”. The village also has the luxury 4 star Springs Hotel set in extensive ‘park like’ grounds overlooking a private lake and now having a highly regarded and established golf course which can easily be accessed on foot from Chalk Pit Cottage. The peaceful nature of the village belies its close proximity to an excellent road network, linking with the M4 and M40 motorways. For rail commuters there are stations at Goring on Thames and Cholsey, both of which provide fast and regular services to Oxford, Reading and London (Paddington). * GORING on THAMES – 4 miles * WALLINGFORD – 2½ miles * DIDCOT – 9 miles * OXFORD – 14 miles * HENLEY on THAMES – 10 miles * READING - 10 miles * M40 at Lewknor (J6) – 9 miles * M4 at Theale (J12) – 13 miles * CHOLSEY – 3 miles The Property Chalk Pit Cottage is a detached house individually designed and built in the early 1960’s using reclaimed old red bricks under a pitched reclaimed clay tile roof featuring tiled dormer windows to the first floor reflecting a ‘Cottage style’. The traditionally constructed house stands well back from the village road in a large mature garden plot of approximately 2/3 of an acre with stunning views at the rear over surrounding scenic Chilterns countryside.
