Everybody over the age of 40 has heard of Clivedon, scene of much scandal during the Profumo Affair back in the 1960s. But this classic English estate has much more to offer than stories of shamed government ministers. Set high above the River Thames with views across the Berkshire countryside, its lovely gardens are swathed in wonderful displays of colour throughout the seasons. The parterre is an ever-changing palette of florals and the Long Garden topiary and statues are heavenly to wander through. Beyond the manicured formal gardens lie open glades and majestic woodland with the banks of the Thames providing a rich habitat for all sorts of wildlife. Children will love the story-book themed play area, maze and wide open spaces. The present house, the third on the site, was built by Charles Barry for the Duke of Sutherland in 1851.
