This month sees the completion of a 16-month-long, delicate restoration programme at Cliveden, bringing the historic property bang up to date with new technology and contemporary comforts while retaining the elegance of its past.

Planners should make time to explore the two new spaces - the bar, with its striking vista over the parterre and gardens - and the screening room below the stairs in the main house. Suitable for corporate presentations, launches or evening entertainment, the space adjoins another two private rooms to make an interconnecting meeting suite.

All the public spaces and bedrooms at Cliveden have been refurbished and the result is a luxurious retreat which embraces its past of plots, scandals and celebrations. The rooms in the mansion house have just been unveiled and are individually appointed with silk fabrics and velvet seating. The new Reynolds suite has been introduced, in keeping with the house's tradition of naming its rooms after significant contributors to the property's history. Named after the historian whose exacting knowledge of Cliveden's past was crucial across the restoration, the suite overlooks the clocktower courtyard and features a spacious suite with a separate living space and al fresco seating area.

As restorations go, this is one of the most respectful and it has given one of England's historic properties a new lease of life.
