Cliveden House’s connections with the rich and powerful span the 20th century. It was the scene of the 1963 Profumo affair, the home of the first female MP Nancy Astor, and even featured in The Beatles film, Help. More recently, Cliveden House famously hosted the Duchess of Sussex on the eve of her wedding in 2018.

The gracious Italianate mansion is the third house on the site and was conceived by Sir Charles Barry in the 1850s as the home of the Duke and Duchess of Sutherland. Now Grade I listed, the five-star hotel and spa stands in 376 acres of National Trust land.

In February 2013, TRC was approached by Julian Harrap Architects to undertake refurbishment of the second-floor windows, due to our previous project success. Our work at Cliveden was equally well received, and we were commissioned to refurbish all remaining windows and doors.

The three-year project encompassed the full restoration of 300 sash windows and casement windows and French doors, including:

We also carried out some external works to the building, including stone repairs and mastic pointing.

The hotel remained in use throughout the project, hence we took every measure to cause minimum disruption to guests. For example, taking health and safety advice, we developed a safe method of work that avoided the use of external scaffolding.

We also liaised closely with the National Trust and an ecological consultant to ensure important artefacts and bats were protected during the work.
