Your luxurious accommodations set amidst the bucolic beauty of the vast English Countryside will have you feeling you’re to the manor born in no time. Aristocrats from Prince Charles on down roam the territories, enjoying the splendorous seaside, fabulous farmhouses, and serene spas. With a short trip outside of London, you can reach two stunning countryside properties Cliveden House and Chewton Glen. Get all the details here...
If a hotel rich in scandal, secrecy and conspiracy peaks your interest — the Cliveden House is certainly the perfect getaway experience for you. Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House is filled with endless iconic stories and still oozes decadence, elegance and glamour just as it has done for the many distinguished guests who have stayed—and partied—here over the past 350 years. It’s truly unlike any other hotel thanks to its unique personality, which is exhibited throughout each of its rooms. The rooms and suites at Cliveden have each been named after a prominent guest from Cliveden’s history and have all been restored to their full glory, with beautiful craftmanship, stunning interiors and all the comforts and luxury that befits a house like this.
The hotel’s opulence is exhibited throughout the interiors: endless paintings, ornate tapestries, and shiny suits of armor. The rooms are grand in every way possible, with the most spectacular silk touches throughout. Despite the formal style and the grandeur of the great hall, the house holds a relaxed and the most inviting feel, thanks to the friendly and easy-going service from the decade-seasoned staff.
Like all the best house parties, Cliveden’s entertainment doesn’t stop when you go outside. The exterior of the hotel is surrounded by the most beautiful well kept gardens and lawns with sculptures surrounded by woodland maintain and intimate feel. Cruise on the River Thames with champagne in hand, swim in the world-famous outdoor pool where John Profumo first saw Christine Keeler, or spend an afternoon relaxing in the brand new spa that’s tucked away behind mellow brick walls of the garden. There are no shortages of activities, from guided walks to clay shooting, tennis and golf, Cliveden House has it all.
On the dining front, there are two restaurants on property. One—much like the rest of the hotel—is quite elegant and formal, while the other is a more casual option. The food at the former is outstanding with an even more incredible wine pairing from the new young, innovative sommelier who brings in wines from small, organic producers and from the more off-the-beaten path wineries. The latter is located in a former stable and is very chic—reminiscent of an Hermes-style decor.
Just 40 minutes from central London and 25 minutes from Heathrow Airport, Cliveden House is the perfect country retreat. Find hidden gems in the gardens, explore local towns like Windsor and Henley and be charmed, as much by the enchanting surroundings of the house, as by the house itself.
