Only half an hour from London, there are 300 acres of superb woodland, parkland and formal gardens – a paradisiacal getaway known as The Grove. The serenity of this place is almost surreal, considering how close it is to a thriving and noisy metropolis. Trees, flowers, a beautiful lake and a canal are all part of the picturesque setting of this wonderful estate.
The 18th century mansion of The Grove was once the home of the Earls of Clarendon and it still keeps some of its most alluring original features, such as the huge floor-to-ceiling French windows. The vast property offers numerous activity options, which makes is virtually impossible to get bored, no matter how long your vacation may be.
Play croquet, play tennis, enjoy a game of golf, jog, cycle, or just take a walk on the estate’s man made beach. A stroll in the formal gardens is an excellent way to start or end the day, and whenever the heat gets a little too much, a dip in the outdoor pool is a true blessing.
The food here is also amazing. You can choose between three different restaurants, and even though each one of them is unique, they all share the same values, which ensure a flawless dining experience every time. One more thing that every guest loves about this place is the award-winning Sequoia Spa, a realm of tranquility and wellness. So hesitate no more: pack your vacation luggage and leave your busy city for a magical experience at The Grove.
