  • This was our third trip to Cliveden, and this charming estate never fails to please. A variety of woodland and parkland walks, formal and relaxed gardens dotted with modern and classical statuary and the exceptional views across the Thames all contribute to a great afternoon out. We still feel that we haven't covered half of it. One star off for the wholly inadequate catering, so bring a picnic!
  • What a beautiful place. Lovely gardens especially the water garden. Wonderful for children as it has a large well equipped play area. Going round the house, the guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely go again and thoroughly recommend it.
  • I love this place - the grounds of the house are beautiful and extensive, from forested glades to ornamental gardens, the lovely stroll down to the river to the incredible rose and topiary garden at the top end. Great cafe too (although it does get quite busy), with high-chairs and children's food. Seats inside and out. Nice play area available with a second little cafe, all a short walk from the main carpark. Be warned though, it's quite pricey to get in.
  • Great day out at Cliveden. Heaps of space to wander around the beautiful gardens. Great place to bring kids. Even went for a row on the Thames which is a novelty - bring cash for this. The outdoor restaurant is also good for entertaining guests. Food was good. There is also an excellent wine list. The interior of the main building is decorated in incredible detail. This is worth seeing for yourself.
  • An ideal place to keep kids happily busy. The estate is very well maintained. The maze is quite good, kids play area has good equipment, and the fountains, stone bridges and fish in the pond is a good amusement for adults equally. The Orangery offers decent selection of food, drinks and ice cream. It is also a nice walk down to river Thames, with some very good views. Overall a good family day out with lots of picnic space.
