Set in six acres of beautiful gardens and boasting Europe's largest tulip trees Taplow House Hotel is the perfect setting for a meeting, private event, wedding or relaxing overnight stay.
An Elizabethan Manor was built in 1598 on a green and secluded hill just east of Maidenhead on what was thought to have been the site of an Anglo-Saxon settlement dating back at least 1,300 years. A devastating fire completely destroyed that house in 1660, the existing Georgian property was built in 1751 and it remained a private residence until 1958. The building has a rich and varied history following its presentation by James I to Hampson, the first governor of Virginia in 1628. It was owned by Pascoe Grenfell, the MP for Great Marlow and Penrhyn in 1794 before being sold to the Marquess of Thomond in 1838. It has been put up for sale by auction twice, once in 1875 and again in 1906 where auction booklets have clearly recorded the many changes to the property over time. The 1875 auction details list several outbuildings including a thatched outer larder as well as a conical icehouse, which sadly disappeared over time. The grounds of the Hotel hold a number of interesting trees. The Cedar of Lebanon, introduced into Great Britain in 1638 was planted in the gardens around 1880. But the trees with the most interesting story by far are the Tulip Trees. These trees are reputed to have been planted by Queen Elizabeth I and are the tallest and fattest examples in Europe. Some historical figures to have visited Taplow House include Queen Elizabeth I and Oscar Wilde.

Hello this box should be movable. It has lots of information to force an overflow and hopefully this will generate a scrollbar.
A second paragraph will be necessary to force this to happen as the first paragraph is not long enough on its own.
