WHAT’S THERE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN?

Visiting a garden may seem a trifle boring for smaller tots but there is actually a lot to do here to keep little minds active.

The Storybook Play Den is a great favourite with younger children as they are free to explore a collection of popular storybook characters which have been carved from wood.

The maze is also a winner with its twirling succession of never ending paths – making the trip to the centre (and out again!) fun for the whole family!

WHAT’S THERE FOR OLDER CHILDREN?

The endless miles of woodland and gardens to explore are treat enough for the older ones.

However, Cliveden does hold events throughout the year which are very popular with children, including family camping nights and live re-enactments of what life at Cliveden house was like in the 1930s.

WHAT’S THERE FOR ADULTS

The beauty of the gardens throughout the seasons is reason enough to visit Cliveden House.

From formal gardens to riverside walks and stunningly vibrant borders, this is an intriguing place to visit and really very peaceful.

What’s more, the restaurant is an attraction in itself with local sourced ingredients and some very talented chefs.
As well as Cliveden House, there are many other local attractions within a short drive of the Thames Riviera hotel:
