Shiplake railway station, 0.4 miles walk from The Beeches, offering a service on the Henley Branch Line to Twyford from where mainline trains to London Paddington and the West can be taken. A draw for many will be Crossrail, which is anticipated to be running from 2022, from Reading through Central London out to the east of London.
Access to the M4 is within 10 miles to the south.
The River Thames is nearby for water pursuits with the annual Henley and Shiplake Regattas. The Thames Path and The Chiltern Hills offer charming riverside/ countryside walks and cycling in the fresh air
