Hartwell House, located in the Vale of Aylesbury and just forty miles north west of London, is one of Buckinghamshire's most celebrated country houses. Built in the early seventeenth century for the Hampden family, the house has both Jacobean and Georgian features with outstanding decorative plaster-work and panelling. Its fine elegant reception and dining rooms create the ambience of a great country house.
The forty-six bedrooms, including those in the adjacent Hartwell Court, are individually furnished with fine prints, pictures and antiques.
The Hartwell Court, formerly a coach house and located adjacent to the main house, has been restored and extended to provide excellent conference and meeting facilities in the Hartwell Rooms, with Hartwell Spa offering an indoor swimming pool and an extensive range of exercise possibilities and beauty treatments. Hartwell Court also provides sixteen additional bedrooms and suites, corresponding in style to those in the house.
Recently restored, The Old Rectory, an elegant Georgian house standing within the grounds of Hartwell House, offers complete peace and privacy for smaller groups.
Restored by Historic House Hotels, who also restored Bodysgallen Hall in North Wales, and Middlethorpe Hall in York, Hartwell House together with its companion hotels were donated to the National Trust in September 2008.
Hartwell House is a member of the Pride of Britain Hotels consortium (Pride of Britain Hotel of the Year 2008), has 4 AA Red Stars and famous fine dining restaurant.
In September 2008 HISTORIC HOUSE HOTELS LTD and all its interests in HARTWELL HOUSE and the other two Historic House Hotels, BODYSGALLEN HALL and MIDDLETHORPE HALL, became the property of the NATIONAL TRUST, by donation, with all profits henceforward benefiting the houses and the charity.
