Why would Sir choose the Cliveden House Downton Abbey Butler Experience, sir?
Many experiences offer an escape from the busy-ness of modern life, and while this mini-break certainly offers tranquillity, there are a hundred and one more reasons to enjoy Cliveden House Downton Abbey Butler Experience. These include the obligatory fine dining, overnight accommodation in heavenly suites, pampering of the highest magnitude and, in true Downton tradition, lots and lots of scandal... which you'll hear straight from the horse's mouth.
Actually, not the horse - but the butler, who knows even more than the horse!
Built in rural Berkshire by the Duke of Buckingham in 1666, this Italianate-style mansion has played host to every British monarch since George I, so if you want a royally spectacular experience, this is it! There's nothin' these walls, maids, butlers, valets and cooks ain't seen! From the original Duke killing his mistress's husband in a duel, to Lady Astor's dubious friends, to the dangerous liaison that began the Profumo Affair and brought down the British Government.
Is that enough melodrama for you, Downtown fans?
What does the break include, my good man?
The Butler Did It break is the perfect vacation for obsessive Downton Abbey fans and anyone who loves pure, unadulterated indulgence. It includes overnight accommodation in your chosen room or suite, and both dinner and a full English breakfast in the André Garrett Restaurant.
