Discover the Chilterns in 2013
22 Jan 2013
Spread across 324 square miles the Chilterns is a destination of superb scenery, intriguing attractions, tucked-away villages and market towns. Set within this is Hartwell House which enjoys a tranquil setting in the Buckinghamshire countryside, located two miles west of the busy town of Aylesbury.
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 follies.
Located just an hour from London, Hartwell House & Spa is a unique destination and part of the National Trust. The hotel is Buckinghamshire’s finest Stately Home and its spa is home to a gorgeous swimming pool, spa bath, steam room, saunas and outdoor hot tub, located on the spa sun terrace.
Hartwell House’s most famous resident was Louis XVIII, exiled King of France, who lived there with his Court for five years.
Built in the early 17th century, this Grade I listed building is today home to 46 bedrooms, all individually furnished with fine prints, pictures and antiques. Discover the beauty of the 90 acres of gardens and parkland whilst enjoying a spa break. The garden was laid out at the start of the 18th century, in the formal style with allées and garden buildings: temples, columns, an obelisk, garden statuary, canals and an amazing yew tree exedra. These garden features are all ideal to enjoy throughout the year. An award winning restaurant offers British dishes to help further celebrate a spa break in style.
For shopping fans a visit to Bicester Village, Europe’s leading luxury designer outlet shopping destination is a must and located within close proximity to Hartwell House. Also located close by is Ascot Racecourse and Royal Ascot.
