Stay Afloat at Cliveden

Plan a timeless escape to Cliveden House

Enjoy a stroll through 376 acres of lawn and parkland that roll down to the River Thames, where you can cruise along on Belmont, Cliveden’s 1930s slipper launch.

Soak up the mystery and intrigue that permeate the air as you float down the River Thames, which inspired Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows and provided a setting for William Morris’s utopian novel 'News from Nowhere'.
