Black Park, Wexham

Black Park, Wexham

The largest of Buckinghamshire’s country parks with well over 10 miles of well surfaced flat trackways and paths set in 535 acres of woodland and heathland. A great place for a family day out or just an afternoon stroll in the forest ending with a cup of coffee or ice cream next to the picturesque lake. The great expanse of Black Park has numerous trackways.

The River Thames

The River Thames

There’s a lot more to the River Thames than London. From its source near the Cotswolds to Teddington lock, the River Thames is the perfect place to go boating, walking or fishing. Why not relax with a bite to eat with friends at one of the many pubs and restaurants along the River Thames, or make a short break of it staying in a riverside retreat.

Cliveden House

Cliveden House

This spectacular estate overlooking the River Thames has a series of gardens, each with its own character, featuring roses, topiary, statuary, water gardens, a formal parterre, informal vistas, woodland and riverside walks. The present Cliveden House, the third on the site, was built by Charles Barry for the Duke of Sutherland in 1851. Cliveden is a privately owned 5 Red Star award-winning hotel and is the sister hotel to the world-renowned Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa in Hampshire. The house has twice been destroyed by fire, only to emerge, phoenix-like, more stunning than before.

Waddesdon Manor

Waddesdon Mannor

This Renaissance-style chateau is set within a magnificent garden, an ensemble created by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 1870s for his house parties. The unique collection of 18th-century French objects includes buttons, gold boxes, cabinets, carpets and porcelain. There are 18th-century English faces in the magnificent Gainsborough portraits, as well as paintings by Bakst. The gardens are famous for their views over the Vale of Aylesbury, and for sculpture, specimen trees, a colourful parterre and striking displays of seasonal bulbs and bedding plants.
