The Affair at Seven Gables

This was once cottages for the Cliveden Estate workers, but is now let as a holiday home.

Legend has it that this is where the then Secretary of State for War, John Profumo, met Christine Keeler, a 19 year old, aspiring model.

This led to a cabinet crisis, the Profumo Affair,  in 1961.

The meeting certainly took place on the Cliveden Estate, but it’s speculation that it actually took place at this cottage.
