In the grounds of a National Trust property in Berkshire, this luxurious country-house hotel has 376 acres of grounds and woodlands in which kids can run riot and burn off excess energy. And despite its grandeur, Cliveden House is also genuinely family-friendly, with attentive  but not overbearing staff who make visitors of all ages feel right at home. 

Rooms are elegant, with classic decor. There's also an 18th-century cottage in the grounds, on the banks of the Thames, that's perfect for family breaks. As well as indoor and outdoor pools and a lovely spa, there's a babysitting service perfect for those evenings when you want a romantic meal for two. All this within easy reach of London...


Cliveden House is in Taplow, Berkshire, about 20 minutes' drive from Heathrow Airport and 6km from the nearest train station, Burnham.
