The unveiling of the new Cliveden Spa is the cherry on top of a spectacular, luxury hotel and experience, making the accolade particularly timely to coincide with such a milestone.
To give you an idea of the experience, Cliveden is in 376 acres of National Trust grounds, a magnificent stately home that’s played host to almost every British monarch since George I and that was taken on by hotel scions – the Astors – in 1906.
The hotel’s history is a who’s who of the UK’s hoi polloi, and having matriculated from royalty to hosting world leaders and literary legends over the last century, one such guest was Sir George Bernard Shaw, who happily frequented the bar and restaurant.
In the garden you will find steaming hot tubs and the infamous Profumo pool, famed for its association with the Profumo affair in the 1960s, and throughout the estate you will find tennis courts and opportunities to relax in leisurely style, taking in the surroundings.
For those looking for something different this October, perhaps visit on the 14th & 15th of October for the Cliveden Literary Festival. The festival will evoke the spirit of the great writers and potentates who stayed here and continue the tradition of the house as a sanctuary for lovers of literature.
Congratulations to Clivden – it’s another of many reasons for us to visit!
