Hartwell House is a beautifully restored 17th century stately home standing in ninety acres of landscaped parkland just 40 miles north-west of London. The magnificent rooms are superbly furnished with antiques and fine paintings. Its high ceilings, fine fabrics and dreamy views over the extensive landscape make it a truly idyllic setting. Once the residence of Louis XVIII of France while in exile, the 90 acres of parkland offer romantic walks, with a Gothic church, bridge, lake, statues and follies to explore.
There are thirty exquisitely designed bedrooms and suites on three floors in the main house, each aimed at ensuring luxury, comfort and enjoyment during your stay. In addition, there are ten suites and six bedrooms in Hartwell Court, the adjacent 18th century converted indoor riding school. The Old Rectory at Hartwell adds a further accommodation gem, and has a superbly appointed master four poster suite with a sitting room and three other bedrooms with bathrooms, a drawing room, dining room and kitchen. It is set in its own private 2 acres garden with outdoor swimming pool.
Hartwell is only one hour from central London by road and rail with London Heathrow and Luton Airports just 45 minutes away. It also has a helicopter landing pad. It is an ideal place for a top level special event, meeting , conference or team building event.
