Hartfield - the Woodhouse home

Hartfield is the center of this story. It is where Emma lives with her elderly father. Emma's father often grumbles if he has to leave his comfortable home to venture outside. Emma wants to stay in Hartfield with her father and have time stay still. In fact, at the end of the story Emma even convinces her new husband to come live in HER house with her, to in essence abandon his own very nice house for a while!

Hartfield is said to be the largest, nicest house in the town of Highbury.

In the 1996 version of Emma the house is a column-fronted mansion with a very cozy library complete with tons of books and a lovely fire. It is often where Emma's father falls asleep after having a glass of port.
