More Information

One of England's finest country Houses, built for refined living and entertaining. A centre of influence, wealth and political power for over 300 years. The famous former home of Lady Nancy Astor and the Astor dynasty. There is no other place in the world quite like Cliveden.

A stay at Cliveden has been an unforgettable experience for centuries. Originally built by the second Duke of Buckingham in 1666 as a country retreat and pleasureground, Cliveden has played host to almost every British Monarch since George I. Queen Victoria adored it, and visited as often as she could.

Cliveden perhaps reached its zenith as the family home of Nancy, Lady Astor, a charismatic American socialite and the first woman MP in the British parliament. Among Nancy's distinguished acquaintances were President Roosevelt, George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin all of whom stayed at the House.

Today, you can walk in the footsteps of Cliveden's notable past guests, relax and play in its luxurious surroundings, and enjoy its beautifully kept landscaped estate. Run as a prestigious and internationally renowned five star hotel since 1986, Cliveden is rare as a place that offers genuine individuality, outstanding comfort, combined with breathtaking architectural and natural beauty.

Whether staying for business or for pleasure; whether running a conference, arranging private dining or organising a wedding; Cliveden provides a unique and stunning backdrop. Each visit is an experience of a lifetime, yet guests return again and again.
