Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
De Vere Latimer Estate is a Victorian manor with 30 acres of grounds overlooking the River Chess and the Chess Valley in the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding National Beauty.
The hotel is a great base for walkers -- the Chess Valley Walk, a 10-mile marked route along the River Chess, passes by the hotel. The river is rich in flora and fauna; keep an eye out for orchids, kingfishers, water voles, brown trout and dragonflies. This route runs through the village of Sarratt Bottom and the town of Rickmansworth. Near Sarratt, you'll pass the 15th-century, Grade I-listed Chenies Manor, which was visited by Elizabeth I and is rumoured to have a secret tunnel linked to the hotel.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter and The Snow Centre, an indoor skiing and snowboarding centre in Hemel Hempstead, are both less than 20 minutes' drive from the hotel.
The Roald Dahl Museum is also 20 minutes' drive away and The Chiltern Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in the Chilterns, is a 25-minute journey by car.
The original mansion house has undergone a complete transformation, including a new 1838 Restaurant & Bar with a theatre-style kitchen and outdoor dining courtyard, and the new Huntley Bar. There is also an artisan coffee shop called Burr & Co.
Facilities at the hotel include a gym, an indoor swimming pool and a sauna. Wi-Fi is free.
