Beyond the Italianate main house, down on the bank of the River Thames, is Cliveden estate’s Spring Cottage. A three-bedroom retreat, built as a summerhouse for the Countess of Orkney in 1813 and
extended in the second half of the 19th century, it sleeps six guests in three bedrooms (one of which is en suite) and a snug which can convert into a fourth bedroom. Christine Keeler was staying
here just as the Profumo affair broke in 1963, but current guests can expect an altogether more tranquil time. A cruise on the river with the boatman might be as disgraceful as it gets. There’s a
private garden which reaches down to the water, a secluded courtyard garden and an open fire. For those who have more serious business to attend to, the main house has various event spaces,
including oak-panelled boardrooms, an array of dining rooms and outdoor space for a marquee.
