Certificate of Excellence
Set in 300 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside and just 18 miles from central London, The Grove is more than a five-star hotel. The former home of the Earls of Clarendon, the hotel has been lovingly restored and is now home to 215 luxurious bedrooms and suites, an award-winning spa, championship golf course and restaurants, offering an array of dining options. Outside, the 300 acres boast formal gardens and woodland, perfect for family activities including Segway experiences and bike rides. The Grove’s hidden gem is the enchanting Walled Garden, a quirky haven complete with a private beach, outdoor heated pool and tennis and volleyball courts.
