Stone is a historic village situated in the south-west of Aylesbury. It has many shops, amenities and lots of green space for relaxing countryside walks. It is also the home of Hartwell House, a Grade I listed Jacobean country house. Our team of estate agents in Stone have put together this guide to show you everything you need to know about this historic, countryside village.
Hartwell House & Spa
One of England’s stately homes, just 40 miles northwest of London, set in over 90 acres of gardens and parkland designed by a contemporary of Capability Brown, located within the Vale of Aylesbury and on the edge of the Chilterns, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The National Trust-owned Grade 1 listed Jacobean and Georgian house caters for weddings, wine & dining, afternoon tea, weekend breaks, and meeting and events.
A popular pub-restaurant, the Bugle Horn started life as a farmhouse, but during the early 1800s, it was used as a wine store for Hartwell House, whilst Louis XVIII of France lived there in exile. Soon after, it became known as the Plough; its current name comes from the fossils of the same name that can be seen in The Bugle Horn’s walls.
Hartwell Nurseries is for customers and tradesmen, a “Gardener’s Garden Centre” no matter whether you garden for fun or do it for a living. They offer plants, furniture and features, tools and hardware, amongst many other things. There is also a tea room on site.
