Hatfield House is among the most quintessentially English country homes, with its beautifully preserved buildings and grounds making for a fantastic day out. This rolling Jacobean estate in the stunning Hertfordshire countryside has a history which is reflected in our collection of hotels nearby. From 14th-century pubs to 1930s art deco delights, all are bookable on Culture Trip.
A roaring log fire, real ale on tap and hearty pub grub – the White Horse is as cosy and welcoming as you’d hope a country pub to be. That extends to the traditionally designed guest rooms upstairs. Dogs and muddy boots are welcome – which is just as well, as there’s a fantastic choice of walking trails in the town of Hertford and the surrounding countryside.
