Enjoy a luxurious countryside escape just 20 minutes from the capital
The Grove is known for its luxurious spa facilities which help attract people to this huge, elegant country pile just ten minutes off the M1 in Hertfordshire. There's the Vitality Pool with hydrotherapy jets, the huge indoor pool and extensive spa menu. But during the summer months a lot of the action (or should we say, blissful inaction) takes place outside with the fantastic pool and beach in the hotels walled garden. That's not all – this summer the hotel has installed more than 80 pieces of sculpture around the place, created variously by Royal Academicians, international artists and up-and-coming names. So you can feel pampered and indulge your art-loving side too.
