Clive­den House, Berk­shire

Golf World (UK) - - PRIZE DRAW -

Be­fore we be­gin, an ad­mis­sion. Clive­den House does not have a golf course at­tached to it. If your overnight stay de­mands a course in situ, this is not the five-star uber-op­u­lent overnight es­cape you are look­ing for. Clive­den House is an his­toric Grade I listed stately home set upon 376 glo­ri­ous acres of Na­tional Trust grounds. Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buck­ing­ham, as a gift to his mistress, it has re­mained a pin­na­cle of in­trigue and glam­our for the elite ever since and re­mains ev­ery bit as lux­u­ri­ous as those pre­vi­ous lines sug­gest. That it doesn’t have a golf course out back should not de­ter you. Stand­ing close to Taplow in Berk­shire, many of Eng­land’s finest cour­ses are a short drive away, with many less-vaunted but no-less-ap­peal­ing cour­ses just min­utes away. In short, make this your base for a golfing es­cape and you won’t be­grudge the drive. www.clive­den­
