The Old Rectory

With access to the exclusive Hartwell House Hotel & Spa, guests of The Old Rectory can enjoy a relaxing break in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside.. An elegant detached Georgian house, The Old Rectory at Hartwell House is a Grade II listed building set within two acres of immaculately kept gardens, with private gated access within the grounds of Hartwell House Hotel & Spa. It is situated in the Vale of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, only one hour’s drive from central London and Heathrow Airport, and within easy reach of the M40 with direct road links to both London and the Midlands.

The ground floor boasts a large, well-equipped kitchen, cloakroom, dining room with a circular table seating up to 10 guests, and a drawing room with comfortable sofas and chairs with a door leading out to the garden. In addition there is a small boardroom which can be used as a meeting room or informal study. The main staircase leads to the first floor where the master suite is situated, a magnificent four poster bedroom and large sitting room. Just along the corridor is the Chinese room, aptly named with an unusually decorated wardrobe. Another staircase takes you to the second floor with a single bedroom and a French room, which can either be used as a double or a twin room. All the bedrooms are en-suite and have superb views overlooking St Mary’s Church and The Old Rectory grounds.
