About The Old RectoryA 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 complimentary use of the Hartwell Spa.
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.
