Set amongst 376 acres of National Trust Parklands, the House is approached by a spectacular driveway. The iconic Fountain of Love gives visitors a foretaste of the grandeur. The interior of the House does not disappoint the sense of anticipation created by this stately drive and imposing façade. Guests are treated like royalty – the attention to detail and personalised service are the hallmarks of this renowned country house hotel. Standing upon chalk cliffs that gave the estate its name, the House commands panoramic views over the beautiful Berkshire countryside.
