This hotel is a perfect family- and dog-friendly escape by the Thames.

Sitting pretty along the River Thames, sandwiched between the historic villages of Goring and Streatley, this perfectly positioned hotel is an idyllic escape for a weekend away – and it's dog friendly too. Just moments from the National Trust’s Lardon Chase, Holies and Lough Down properties, ample woodland and rolling hills make for brilliant walks with glorious views over the Goring Gap. Nearby Beale Park is great for the kids, and a 10-minute drive (or a couple hours walking along the river) takes you to the market town of Wallingford, where the ruins of a Norman castle sit just beyond the river and a decent little museum tells tales of the area’s early Saxon arrivals.

The hotel itself is worth sticking around at, though. It had a much-needed refurbishment in 2019, and the result is a chic property with neutral tones and clean décor that retains its cosiness through plush carpets and comfy sofas. On-site, there’s a riverside café-bar that opens out to a manicured with deck chairs and picnic benches. There’s water-side dining at the adjoining Coppa Club restaurant, and if the surrounding countryside isn’t enough for you, the impressive gym runs daily classes and there’s a yoga studio overlooking the water, too.

The Swan at Streatley has everything a dog-owner could want for a staycation with their mutt. Ground floor, river-facing rooms have direct access to a lawn, the dog will get a blanket, bowl and biscuits, and those walks along the river are a beautiful way to start the day.



Open all year.


Doubles rooms from £85 a night, not including, breakfast which costs £5–£16 from the café-bar. Dogs are £10 each, maximum two per room.
