We’ve held incredible FAM trips this year, for our last FAM trip of 2018 we have just experienced the amazing Cliveden House!
Cliveden House is a 5 star hotel within the Iconic Hotel group. Located within easy reach of Heathrow and Gatwick airports making it the perfect spot for events where you have international guests. Plus super easy access for your guests travelling from London.
If the 350 year old walls could talk the stories would be incredible due to high profile personalities, debaucherous parties and scandalous affairs that have taken place here – we loved hearing some of the stories!
Driving up the drive I knew we were in for a treat and I wasn’t wrong. To kick off the FAM trip, we took advantage of the beautiful spa area which has an indoor and outdoor pool, treatment rooms and the usual steam and sauna rooms. If only every weekend could start in a spa….
The hotel has a variety of bedrooms and they are all gorgeous – 48 in total plus a 3 bedroom cottage. They are all very spacious with plenty of amenities and space if your delegates are planning on working within their bedroom – the WiFi is excellent so no connection problems!
There are 8 meeting spaces in total – they are all great but the two standouts: the wine cellar for wine tasting and dinners and the French dining room which is gorgeous. On a sunny day this place would be incredible as there are a number of terraces overlooking the National Trust Gardens. The largest space is for 50 delegates, the venue would work really well for exclusive use due the vast amounts of breakout spaces and they can even add a marquee if you wanted a large dinner for up to 230 guests.
After hearing all the amazing stories of the history of the venue and checking out the meeting spaces, we headed to the wine cellars for an evening of wine tasting and dinner (which ended with an impromptu Spice Girls dance off!).
The sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and pushed the boundaries, and our taste buds, with some unusual wines that we would not have normally chosen – but they worked!! The food was outstanding – if only we could have the truffle risotto everyday!!! Highly recommend adding the wine tasting and dinner experience to your agenda for any events held here.
We were hosted by the amazing Lisa Lernoux-Dock, we had an incredible evening and can’t wait to return! Thank you so much Lisa!!!
What a way to end our 2018 FAM trip series on! If you would like to host us in 2019 for a FAM trip drop us a line.
