An exclusive country house hotel owned by the National Trust is featuring in a new Channel 4 TV show.

A Very British Country House, which aired for the first time on Sunday at 9pm, follows staff at Cliveden House on the Bucks/Berkshire border.

The Grade I listed luxurious hotel set in 376 acres of grounds recently become famous for being the hotel that Meghan Markle chose to stay in the night before her marriage to Prince Harry.

The four-part series follows the staff whose job it is to bring five-star service to Cliveden's national and international clientele, and put on some of the hotel's most glamorous events.

It began at the beginning of their busiest summer season, as a visit by Meghan provides the hotel with unprecedented publicity, which the managers quickly capitalise on.

Meanwhile, two social media influencers are invited to stay, and a wedding coordinator prepares the venue for her clients' big day.

The Italianate mansion was designed by Charles Barry in 1851.
