We're fairly regular visitors at Cliveden, and the gardens, grounds and riverside walk in particular are fabulous. We went yesterday on a very chilly day, and very much enjoyed the walk. We were absolutely freezing, though, and went to the Orangery Cafe. For years this place has been pretty poor; it's always stark and grubby inside, but at least it usually had ceiling heaters to take a bit of the chill off. Yesterday, all doors and windows were wide open, there was no heating and we sat there with our teeth chattering, in coats, hats, gloves etc. The sausage rolls were cold, the tea was lukewarm and it was just a horrible environment for a snack. They really should, in December, have the doors and windows closed and some heating on, Covid or no Covid, it was ridiculous. Most NT cafes are struggling, we know why they all have to be a bit redolent of 1958 Poland in terms of lack of choice, and generally a bit miserable, and we understand that this is temporary, but really, the Orangery Cafe was way worse than the others.

Must see this place. It’s so relaxing to walk by the river and then pop into Cliveden House for afternoon tea

Dear too84, Thank you for your review & 5 star rating! The river really is one of the best places & has been stunning over the autumn months with the leaves on the tress changing from green through to orange to gold to red .... Hopefully you can come back to see it on a misty, frosty winter day which is just as lovely. Kind regards

We enjoyed our walks around the grounds and there was plenty to see/explore. The riverside walk along the Thames was very pleasant and I also loved the water gardens. Despite the Covid issue there was a kiosk open selling snacks (with a very pleasant server) and the shop is also open. Make sure you odn't miss out the church by the river - the inside is stunning!

Hi sand100, Thank you for your review. We're so glad that you enjoyed your walk in the fresh air here at Cliveden. The chapel is lovely - small but perfectly formed! It looks fairly unassuming from the outside & then you see inside .... We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards

Beautiful gardens and stunning architecture, all very photogenic especially on a sunny day without a cloud in the sky. Plenty of space to walk and benches to rest. We spent four hours there, the water gardens are so peaceful, small shop and cafe are both open. Currently you need to book tickets in advance (even if you are a NT member) which are released each Friday for the following week. I will return one day to stay in the hotel!

Lovely gardens and woodland walks. Paths well maintained so comfortable walking. We did a loop down the green drive to the Duke's statue and then down to the river, along the river and up the steps to the Temple. 160 steps but wide and easy stepping distances so can pause when needed. The temple was open. Short queue and then we had to wear our masks but well worth seeing inside (one bubble at a time). We were also able to go into the undercroft under the terrace. Water and rose gardens are also beautiful and worth the visit. Cafe is limited and slow moving but plenty of tables outside.
