Cumberland Lodge, a stunning 17th century mansion and former Royal house, is surrounded by 4,500 acres of an equally stunning Windsor Great Park. Cumberland Lodge was built early in the period of Oliver Cromwell’s republic and the story of English domestic architecture is told through its walls and decorations. Many of the most prominent people in our national history have lived or worked here.

Cumberland Lodge, which offers over fifty charming bedrooms, is the home of an educational charity of the same name, founded in 1947 to provide a place where university students can consider ethical, moral and spiritual connections with their degree courses in a place conducive to discussion and quiet reflection. For the charity to assist universities with the funding of their visits, a broad spectrum of public and private sector organisations are encouraged to use Cumberland Lodge for conferences, seminars and day meetings.
