Lardon Chase is on a spur of land overlooking Streatley and the Thames Valley. It is a lovely place to while away a few hours relaxing, walking the dogs or playing with the family.
After you enter Lardon Chase through the gate, walk along the hedgerow and admire the view over the villages of Goring and Streatley below you.
To the south-east is the so-called Goring Gap and in the distance, weather permitting, you will be able to make out the Tilehurst water tower on the outskirts of Reading.
How to get there
Take the the B4009 from Streatley towards Chieveley, a car park located along this road or you can walk up the hill from Streatley.
There is a car park on the right at the top of the hill from Streatley. Alternatively park down in Streatley and take the steep climbing footpath up from the village.
A ramped disabled WC is situated in the visitors centre right next to the lake. Electrical wheelchairs can be hired free of charge from the Centenary Lodge Visitors Centre. Advance booking required.
