Shinfield & Ryeish Green

Shinfield & Ryeish Green: A Touch of Hollywood in a Berkshire Village  

Whilst always villages, they were physically separated from Reading, in 1971 with the introduction of the M4, Shinfield is a fast growing and increasing popular village to reside. Soon to have that added glamour of Hollywood, with eighteen state of the art sound and film studios, being completed in the nearby Thames Valley Science Park, which has already seen one Hollywood blockbuster filmed there.

Thoughtfully Situated: Attracting both commuters, families and discerning buyers wanting to be close to, but not trapped in the rat race. Providing easy access to junction 11 of the M4, Green Park, Thames Valley Business Park, and the Science Park, along with Reading and the quintessential market town of Wokingham, both with main line stations. With countryside walks, and country parks on the doorstep, it really is the best of both worlds.

Local Amenities and Attractions:  The village green and School Green Centre are the community hub of the village, with plenty of activities throughout the year, and the centre also includes a library, Robyn’s Nest Café, and home to various community events and groups. 5* Dining is on had at L’Ortolan French restaurant which enjoys a picturesque setting, for those with a more modest budget The Shinfield Arms, Bell & Bottle and The Six Bells with its Indian flavours are a more than adequate option. Schooling is catered for with Shinfield Infant and Nursery, St Marys CE. Junior school, Alder Grove Primary School, with Lambs Lane and Whiteknights Primary close by. Secondary education is served at Oakbank School. The Shinfield Players Theatre has been providing residents that have a penchant for drama and a great social seen sine 1956 and a Co-Op Food store for all your daily needs.

Property Market:  Whilst there has been significant development and expansion of the village over recent years, it still retains that village feel. For those seeking, modern or brand-new home, Shinfield Meadows, Langley Mead, Long Acre and Maybank offer an excellent spectrum of properties. Shinfield certainly isn’t restricted to modern homes, with substantial period properties found on non-estate and enclaves, and a plethora of semi-detached and detached family homes.
