Gardenvisit Editorial

Cliveden stands on a high wooded plateau overlooking the River Thames. The name "Cliveden" (formerly Cliffden or Clyveden) means "valley among cliffs". The original house was built in 1666. Charles Bridgeman designed walks and avenues. The present house and garden were designed by Sir Charles Barry in 1849. The garden is in the Italian mode of the nineteenth century Mixed Style. A balustrade was brought from the garden of the Villa Borghese, in Rome, in 1896. Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe designed a Rose Garden for Lord Astor in 1959.

    Great place for walking along woodland paths with spectacular views; by the Thames or strolling in the more formal gardens. Always so much to see. Delicious food and coffee at the Orangery.

    The stately and beautiful house is a hotel so you can't go in unless on special days. Although there is a great gold clock tower. However the scale of the stunning grounds and views more than makes up for this. Be prepared for plenty of walking here to get the most out of your day :)

    An awesome place. There is a luxury of space, so that everything sits well and is well proportioned.
    The tulips were gradually going over on my recent visit, and yet the plantings in the serpentine walk or whatever it is called still looked tremendous.

    You can also see the swimming pool where Christine Keeler once swam nude! (she was famous in the Profumo Scandal)
