Hartwell House, Middlethorpe Hall and Bodysgallen Hall make up Historic House Hotels. In 2008 Historic House Hotels and all its interests in the three hotels, became the property of the National Trust, by donation, to ensure their long-term protection with all profits henceforward benefiting the houses and the charity. Today, each of these hotels continues to celebrate history. A stay in each one of these properties will entice guests to reconnect with their over-three- hundred year histories.
Historic House Hotels are home to unique accommodation settings including cottages and houses located in their grounds, all benefiting from as much or as little of the hotel facilities as desired by guests. Each hotel is home to an award-winning restaurant and spa. All three hotels welcome children over the age of six. Each of the hotels is also pooch friendly.

Hall Cottages are clustered around a secluded cottage within the 200 acres whose focal point is a romantic seated niche in the wall overlooking the 17th Century parterre gardens.

Each cottage is different and has its own private garden. The cottages have between one and three bedrooms with bathrooms, a sitting room and separate areas for making tea and coffee. Spa Cottages are a short walk away from the main hall and have been adapted from old farm buildings. As their name suggests, they are located by the spa. Priced from £230.00 per cottage, per night based on two guests and including breakfast in the hotel. http://www.bodysgallen.com/hall-cottages
