The perfect semi-rural retreat

The charming village of Riseley is placed on the fringes of Berkshire and Hampshire’s picturesque countryside. Amenities in the village include the village hall, traditional pub and playing fields. 

Via a public path, you can enjoy the 350 acres of Wellington Country Park, or stock up on home grown produce from the Wellington Farm Shop. While The Duke of Wellington’s former country residence can be found nearby Stratfield Saye Park.

Reading, Wokingham and Basingstoke are also close to home, where you can take advantage of all kinds of high street shops, bars, restaurants, leisure facilities and cultural attractions. 

Choosing the right school is also made easier, with a number of ‘good’ schools nearby, including Whitewater CofE Primary, Robert May’s Secondary and Daneshill Independent School. There are also plenty of local sports clubs and golf courses close by.

Whether you’re commuting or getting away for the weekend, here you can enjoy the best of both worlds. With the A33 running through the village, leading to the M4 or for routes south, the M3 is also within close reach.

The capital is approximately 46 miles by car, or you can catch a direct train from Reading station to London Paddington in approximately 30 minutes. What’s more, Crossrail will be available from Reading station, which will allow passengers to travel through central London without having to change.
