Our Inspector's View

Cliveden is an impressive stately home standing at the end of a long, gravelled boulevard. Now restored to its former glory, Cliveden welcomes guests in luxury and style. Visitors are treated as house guests and staff recapture the tradition of fine hospitality. The range of suites and bedrooms have individual style, and the reception rooms retain a timeless elegance. The Cliveden Dining Room has been awarded three AA Rosettes for its outstanding cuisine, and guests can also dine at the Astor Grill, housed in the old stable block. Hidden behind the garden's brick walls and enveloped by lavender and tumbling, scented roses is the Cliveden Spa – a tranquil, relaxing oasis that provides the perfect place to escape, renew and refresh.

About The area

Discover Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire is a land of glorious beech trees, wide views and imposing country houses. Victorian Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli savoured the peace and tranquillity of Hughenden Manor, while generations of statesmen have entertained world leaders at Chequers, the Prime Minister’s rural retreat. Stowe and Waddesdon Manor are fine examples of even grander houses, set amid sumptuous gardens and dignified parkland.

The Vale of Aylesbury is a vast playground for leisure seekers with around 1,000 miles (1,609km) of paths and tracks to explore. Rising above it are the Chiltern Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covering 308sq miles (798sq km). They are best appreciated in autumn, when the leaves turn from dark green to deep brown. In the southeast corner of the Chilterns lie the woodland rides of Burnham Beeches, another haven for ramblers and wildlife lovers. Although the county’s history is long and eventful, it’s also associated with events within living memory. At Bletchley Park, more than 10,000 people worked in complete secrecy to try and bring a swift conclusion to World War II. Further south, an otherwise unremarkable stretch of railway line was made infamous by the Great Train Robbery in the summer of 1963.
