The facts about Hartwell House

Hartwell House is a substantial English country house hotel that is situated in the Vale of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. It is only about a 40 minute drive from the West End of London and it is a great place to visit for a weekend away. It is a welcome respite and easy escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Hartwell House was built in the early seventeenth century and presents guests with some beautiful facilities. The suites are spectacular and the huge rooms have views overlooking the gardens with magnificent windows. The Royal Four Poster Rooms are the premium places to stay in this property. They include traditional four poster beds and were once home to King Louis XVIII and his Queen. They are decorated with striking artwork and antiques.

Traditional Champagne Afternoon Tea is the obvious dining experience that you should select if you want to enjoy an authentic country break. However, the restaurant is also worthwhile visiting for dinner in the evening.

The spa is very good. It is homed in its own building, which is only about 100 yards from the main house.

You can breathe in the fresh air by spending your time walking through the surrounding park, which includes landscaped gardens and totals 90 acres. There is also a bee-keeping area, which you will likely find during a meander.

The Sloaney‘s Editor, Dr Laura Toogood says, “The top rooms at Hartwell House are incredible. The windows are ginormous and add to the grand setting. You could find yourself lost in time while sitting in a window seat and admiring the acres outside that extend beyond the lawn. This is a good destination for those looking to experience a traditional English country house weekend away. You are surrounded by history from the moment you arrive.”
