10 Hotels for The Best Martinis This Christmas by Adrian Mourby

"The bar at Hartwell House was originally a dining room in the Jacobean wing of this National Trust property, built in 1620. Its panelling and carved oak fireplace give a good idea of how warm and cozy the room must have felt in the seventeenth century. There are a series of paintings of Hartwell House circa 1720 on the walls. These are recent copies of Balthazar Nebo originals that were painted in Italy. Immediately beneath them a long bar displays the hotel’s huge collection of spirits, including eight gins – Hendricks, Sipsmith, Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, Plymouth, two Gordons and the Botanist, a Scots gin from Islay that infuses 22 botanicals. The hotel’s classic martini is usually made from Tanqueray and the drinks menu reminds us – quite rightly – that a dry martini should be stirred not shaken. Enough said. If you’re staying or dining at Hartwell House do check out the remarkable Jacobean staircase with its carved balusters. Many of the figures are historical or mythological, but in the twentieth century Winston Churchill and G.K. Chesterton were added. After a cocktail or two see how long it takes you to find them."

Top UK hotels to enjoy the Autumn Sun by Adrian Mourby

"Hartwell House has a remarkable history. Over the last thousand years it’s been home to - amongst many others - William the Conqueror’s illegitimate son; Wicked King John, Louis XVIII (the exiled French king who was restored after Waterloo), and Gustavus IV of Sweden, another exiled king. It’s not surprising then that the house has wonderful grounds for lapping up the autumn sunshine, a total of 90 acres laid out by Capability Brown in his familiar style of smooth undulating grass, scattered trees and serpentine lakes. This parkland dates from the 1750s when the then owner, Sir William Lee, commissioned that equestrian statue of George III’s son, Frederick Prince of Wales, which stands in the centre of a long line of trees leading up the house. The views north, east and south from Hartwell have that idyllic English sense of the pastoral and are enhanced by a charming collection of eighteenth-century pavilions, temples and towers."

Relaxing autumn and winter breaks near London by Jessica Baldwin

"Standing amidst ninety acres of landscaped parkland and just an hour from central London, Hartwell House is an idyllic break for stressed Londoners. Once frequented by Louis XVIII, the exiled King of France, the mansion’s Grade I listed building is crammed with old world charm with Rococo ceilings, fine art at every turn and enchanting antiques galore. Even its grounds are a treasure trove, scattered with ornate statues it has a Gothic chapel, 18th century follies and a picturesque lake to discover. But fear not itchy footed Londoners, it is also a great base for exploring the university town of Oxford and the beautiful Cotswold countryside."

Review of Hartwell House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa

Posted on by Stuart FCustomer stayed Sep 2014

My wife and I visited Hartwell House in September. We travel to the UK annually, where we try to stay in three different country house hotels. We have been doing this for years and I have read wonderful reviews, but never visited before. We loved everything about this fine home. It has a wonderful history, beautiful property inside and out, wonderful service, delicious food and a great location. We look forward to our return.
