Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
The Grove, London’s Country Estate, is more than a five-star hotel.
Set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside and only 18 miles from central London, the former home of the Earls of Clarendon now has 217 bedrooms and suites, a championship golf course, an award-winning spa, three restaurants and extensive function space for corporate and social events.
Lovingly restored to stunning effect, the property fuses contemporary design and original period architecture with exceptionally caring and professional service.
What truly makes The Grove is the feeling of space. Guests can escape outside into extensive gardens designed by the Chelsea Gold Medallist and judge, Michael Balston, or spend time in the original Victorian Walled Garden with its glamorous open-air pool, urban beach, croquet lawn and tennis courts.

A theatrical international dining experience awaits.
Framed by oak beams, laden with rich tan leather and embellished with equine artwork as a nod to the late George Stubbs, The Stables promises a distinctly relaxed setting from which to enjoy artisanal food, laden with good provenance.
