The magnificent rooms are superbly furnished with antiques and hung with fine paintings. Many of the exquisitely designed bedrooms and suites are in the house and some in Hartwell Court, the converted coach house, or the Old Rectory.
With high ceilings, fine fabrics and dreamy views over the extensive landscape, it is a truly idyllic setting. There are thirty bedrooms and suites on three floors in the main house, each aimed at ensuring your comfort and enjoyment during your stay.
In addition, there are ten suites and six bedrooms in Hartwell Court, the adjacent 18th Century former indoor riding school. The Old Rectory Hartwell has a superbly appointed master four poster suite with a sitting room and three other bedrooms with bathrooms.
The principal Dining Room, designed in 1988 in the style of the eminent early 19th Century architect, Sir John Soane, is the setting for the imaginative cooking of our chef, which has been awarded two AA Rosettes.
Selections for both a la carte and daily menus feature seasonal local farms and county produce, together with Hartwell’s orchards and garden fruit, vegetables and herbs to bring the freshest of ingredients to enhance all the true flavours.
An essential part of a visit to Hartwell House is the opportunity to relax and enjoy the pleasures of the Spa. Swim in the warm clear water of the inviting pool lined with blue mosaic tiles, relax in the steam room, sauna and the bubbling waters of the whirlpool bath.
Experienced therapists offer a wide range of beauty treatments using Aromatherapy Associates and Jessica products.
For the energetic, a gymnasium has all the latest equipment to suit all ranges of fitness. In a gallery overlooking the pool is the Spa Café and Bar, serving a range of salads and light meals.
Hartwell House enjoys a tranquil setting in the Buckinghamshire countryside. The Vale of Aylesbury is one of the most beautiful parts of Buckinghamshire, endowed with several grand properties owned by the National Trust, including Waddesdon Manor, home of the Rothschild family; Claydon House, renowned for its association with Florence Nightingale the "Lady of the Lamp"; and Stowe Landscape Gardens with its many temples and follies.
London is easily reached by train or car and Heathrow airport is just one hour's drive. The hotel also lends itself to quick city breaks, or as a base for exploring Oxford, the Cotswolds, and the Chiltern Hills. Bicester Designer Outlet Village is also close at hand offering a relaxed atmosphere for some retail therapy, with a great selection of designer brands offering much reduced prices.
