This old Anglo-Saxon village near Aylesbury was mentioned in the Domesday Book and boasts a magnificent Jacobean mansion, Hartwell House, which is now a well-known hotel. The French king Louis XVlll lived here for four years during his exile. Nearby is the ruin of Hartwell church, designed in the late 18th century by Henry Keene. It is one of England’s most revered early Gothic Revival churches. It has an eight-sided centre and unusual twin towers.
