About The Old Rectory

A Georgian house with its own outdoor pool, traditional furnishings and a wisteria-clad entrance.

The Old Rectory is an elegant Georgian house set in two acres of private garden, within the grounds of the Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa. In keeping with its 18th-century character traditional furnishings and fine floral prints run throughout the luxury four-bedroom property. 

After a long, lazy breakfast, go for a dip in the private outdoor swimming pool, best in summer but if you don’t mind the cold – jump in whatever the weather. Guests at The Old Rectory can also enjoy 15 per cent off spa treatments at the hotel. 
 
Further afield, enjoy some of our other nearby places including Waddesdon Manor, Stowe Landscape Gardens, Blenheim Palace, Hatfield House, Woburn Abbey, Beckonscot Model Village, Chiltern Open Air Museum and the Verulamium Museum.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
