CLIVEDEN HOUSE HOTEL
B ER KSHIR E, EN GLA N D
N E I G H B O R H O O D Berkshire Countryside
Behind its stately facade, Cliveden House hides a checkered past. Built 350 years ago for the
Duke of Buckingham's mistress and backdrop for the scandalous Profumo affair, this sprawling 48-room estate - set upon 376 National Trust-designated acres - has fostered the illustrious and illicit. It cultivates a cultured stay with antique furnishings, period artworks,
four-poster beds and fireplaces; the meticulously tended grounds include a maze and the
celebrated Parterre. Take a walk through the woodlands or a dip in the pool before dining in
style in the André Garrett restaurant or for a more informal experience try the Astor Grill.
