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, Hartwell 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.
