As soon as we saw Hartwell House we fell in love with it and knew that we had to have our wedding (in April 2012) there. Not only is Hartwell House set in the most stunning, peaceful setting, but the house itself is beautiful, amazing to look at and very well kept. Not at all shabby. The staff are all incredibly friendly and seemed really happy to be there. They made my now husband and I feel like we belonged. They made us feel relaxed and nothing was too much trouble for them.
All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and are very homely. After an evening of sampling the most delicious wedding food we went into the library where the fire was lit. We kicked off our shoes and were served coffee and sweets to finish the evening off. It was really relaxing, almost like we were in our own sitting room at home, apart from much, much larger!!
The bedrooms are all individually designed and are well kept. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms big enough for an army! The views are spectacular. The dining room is light and friendly and the food is incredible and they also catered for those with allergies.
Mirella, the amazing wedding planner, is so friendly and was easy to chat to about all of our ideas. She was able to provide us with all of the information we needed and was so helpful answering all of our questions. Mirella arranged all of our meetings with the Marquee company (Hartwell House use them when you have exclusive use) and she gave me some good ideas that helped to make our day even more special. We had 6 months of planning our 'Big Day' and the whole experience was a happy, exciting and not at all a stressful one.
We did not have our wedding ceremony at Hartwell House as we wanted to be married in our local church, but as soon as we arrived we had a glass of champagne handed to us, canapés were handed around and our guests were very well looked after - checking in discretely and with ease. Special thanks to Maggie, Chris, James and Mike for their attention to detail and for making us feel at home throughout our few days there.
Our wedding reception ran smoothly without any hiccups and our guests were blown away at how beautiful Hartwell House was. They all loved their rooms and enjoyed the cooked breakfasts the next morning. We have had so many letters from friends since the wedding saying how much they enjoyed staying there, how lovely all of the staff were, how delicious the food was and how they will be returning soon.
We would recommend Hartwell House to anyone at all, especially those who want a relaxing or romantic weekend away, a private party, a wedding ceremony and/or reception, naming ceremony, somewhere to get away from it all or just for a delicious afternoon tea, lunch or dinner.
