Cliveden House is sited in an enviable location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The gardens are attractive, particularly the Water Garden, and they’re well worth a stroll for some fresh air. Food served in the Conservatory Café is tasty and freshly prepared.

I've never seen any bikes there - unlikely as it is a popular venue for families with young children and walkers of all ages.
