    We were only planning to visit for a couple of hours, but there is so much to see we stayed most of the day. Lovely walks through the wooded areas down to the river, quite a climb back up though! Beau...  more »

    Stunning gardens, lovely family atmosphere. Really worth a visit. So much more to this place than just the Profumo Scandal!  more »

    The gardens were mostly lovely but the map was really confusing. We booked a tour of the house and it was so disappointing. We walked through a few corridors looking at a couple of pictures. Hotel sta...  more »
  • A beautiful peace of land with plenty to see. A must visit place. The gardens are beautiful, the house is amazing. So many places to have a picnic, my favourite is the water gardens. Acres to walk the dog. ( certain areas dogs are not allowed. Visit first without your dog & find your way around it all, so you can plam next visit. There are places to eat if you don't want to take your own food.
  • It is lovely and beautiful. We enjoyed a great boat ride and had a fantastic day... until we discovered that the closest toilets were 172 stairs and a massive hill away... caused huge issues as my 3 year old desperately needed to go.
  • Great place to spend time outdoors. Big and nice park. All neat and clean. Great place for a picnic. Only a few garbage bins are missing.
  • Love Cliveden gardens and ground, every time I go I seem to discover a new nook. The water gardens are particular great for families as there's a playground, picnic benches, decent size made, and small lake with stepping stones, all there to keep kids entertained. The woodland walk by the river can take a while, so only avid walkers should set down that path as it's at a fair incline. Go back again, and again.
  • Such beautiful scenery everywhere. Went with my husband and our two sons. All enjoyed it especially the water garden, maze and house. Really worth visiting on clear sunny days.
