    About this property

    Complimentary Welcome Hamper
    A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

    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 half-bred 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 the 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.

    "Stayed at the Loft for a few days between Christmas and New Year. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and welcome hamper left by the owners was excellent, containing some additional seasonal items such as home made Christmas cake. There was also a small Christmas tree, complete with lights, and a book about Christmas Carols. The owners were helpful and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. They gave some good recommendations on local places to eat, and, as with previous Rural Retreats accommodations, we would not hesitate to return here in the future. Perfect place to stay if you like country walks and peaceful surroundings!"
