Hartford House has so much to offer. It boasts gorgeous accommodation on a beautiful property with fairy tale-like gardens, hundreds of contented horses, a multitude of walks (both tranquil and energetic) and the sparkling deck-chair lined pool. The staff are friendly and attentive and the meals delicious. One can have a relaxed outdoor lunch or an elegant multi-course wine pairing meal. Every suite/ room and every stay is wonderful.

Amazing break!
We had an amazing stay at Hartford House, everything from the service to the food was great. We stayed in the lake suite and it was private and beautiful. The only issues we had was a leak in the roof due to heavy rain the week before and bathtub. Everything else was perfect and it was such a nice, relaxing holiday away from the city. There are many activities to do on the farm itself and in the surrounding areas.
