    The former home of countesses, dukes and the Astor family, Cliveden House has welcomed various noteworthy guests, including Winston Churchill, The Beatles and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The 376-acre property – which sits about 30 miles west of London – offers ample on-site amenities, such as a fitness trail, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and pools, a kids play area and private boats that guests can use on the River Thames. Stately guest rooms are named after past visitors – including Rudyard Kipling – and feature handmade beds, period accents and antique furniture, and many have private terraces with hot tubs. Larger rooms and suites include an honesty bar, fireplaces, original artwork and large terraces with views of the gardens and the Thames. When it comes time to dining, recent guests recommend sitting down for a meal at The Cliveden Dining Room, where the chef creates innovative English menus served in three or seven courses. The Astor Grill is a more casual eatery housed within Lord Astor's former stables. There are also traditional afternoon and Champagne tea services served in The Great Hall.
