Walled Garden at The Grove

Lined with rambling roses and fruit trees, our secluded Walled Garden is open seasonally. It’s the perfect escape on a summer’s day for our hotel residents. With plenty of activities, delicious dining options and our magnificent kitchen garden, you won’t want to leave this hidden gem.

The Walled Garden has now closed for the summer season and will be re-opening Spring 2022. However, our pop-up restaurant, Cinder at The Grove, will be open from 20 October 2021 – 16 January 2022 in the Potting Shed within the Walled Garden.
