The Grove Hotel, Hertfordshire

The Grove is set in the heart of 300 acres of rolling, Constable-esque, Hertfordshire countryside which makes it quite the hit with guests seeking some well earned rest, relaxation and above all, escapism from the rigours of city life. 

The hotel itself was formerly the seat of the Earl of Clarendom and the interiors have since been handsomely styled by Martin Hulbert. The regal style and flawless luxury of this beautifully renovated resort makes The Grove a firm favourite amongst A listers and opulence seekers. Fortunately for those who are predominantly London bound, the resort is just 18 miles from the city and boasts an award winning spa, an immaculately manicured golf course and a sumptuous contemporary buffet-style restaurant that would rival even the most decadent Las Vegas offerings. 

For those looking for yet more, there are also Segways and bicycles which can be used to venture out into the handsome grounds, and beyond. A large amount of ambitious revamping has been underway for some while, many of the luxury rooms are being given a full facelift, much like the rest of The Grove, spectacular attention to detail is assured.
