Hartwell House

Aylesbury

Wander through the ‘extravagantly and sumptuously furnished’ rooms at this stately mansion – it’s not hard to imagine being a member of the court of Louis XVIII of France, who lived here, in exile, in the 19th century. Today, run by Historic House Hotels for the National Trust, it is a ‘special’, ‘blissfully quiet’ place to stay.
