Cliveden House | Berkshire
Cliveden House is a privately owned five AA Red Star award-winning hotel, our story is one of over 350 years of powerful personalities, iconic parties, and scandalous affairs. Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour for the elite. Now, our Grade I stately home set upon 376 acres of beautifully presented National Trust grounds is a luxurious five-star Relais & Châteaux hotel and spa, ready and waiting to welcome you to create your own moment in Cliveden's history.
Cliveden House is renowned for its magnificent 152-hectare estate overlooking the River Thames. Behind its imposing period façade, the 17th-century stately home boasts interiors brimming with English charm. Exquisite antique furniture and paintings contribute to the warm and intimate ambience. Its historical guests have lent their names to the individual rooms, such as Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin, and Rudyard Kipling. Just outside London and a stone’s throw from Windsor, Ascot, and Heathrow, Cliveden House offers fine dining and a promise of relaxation at its beautiful spa, a tranquil oasis hidden away behind the mellow brick walls of the garden. The stunning three-bedroom cottage set on the banks of the river is perfect for families, and a scenic cruise on one of the lovingly restored vintage launches is not to be missed.
