Cliveden, view from the parterre
This is just part of the parterre (formal gardens) that extend for four acres south of the house. As Wikipedia says "It consists of clipped yew pyramids and wedge-shaped beds edged with box hedging and filled with catnip and seasonal planting."

The house is the third on the site, having replaced two others burned down, and was constructed in 1851. The architect was Charles Barry, who was to become more famous for his design of the Palace of Westminster. After ownership by various members of the Astor family, it is now a hotel.

But the gardens are administered by the National Trust and can be visited at anytime. Indeed, you could visit the hotel at any time, but could you afford it?
