Historic Royal Hunting Lodge
The hotel (formally known as Cant’s Hill) was originally built in 1727 as a hunting lodge and afforded rest to royal hunting parties in what was once a part of Windsor Great Park.
Throughout its history the building has played host to many famous and renowned guests. In 1737 the great English Poet Thomas Gray is said to have visited his uncle who owned the house. It is believed that during his time there he was inspired to write his famous poem, “Elegy in a Country Churchyard.”
Later, the country house became known as Burnham Grove and at the beginning on the 20th Century it became home to the wealthy Clifton-Brown family. Renowned for their generous spirit the family enjoyed entertaining guests at the house and hosting events for the villagers of nearby Burnham.
In 1965 the house, somewhat dilapidated, was saved and converted into a country house hotel and was once again able to host eminent guests. In more recent history, the hotel provided the base for the English National Football Team during Euro ’96.
