Explore Our Nature trails

If your family is looking for an engaging way to enjoy the countryside, we have a great selection of nature trails and cycling routes to explore on our doorstep. You can even add a new dimension to your walk by trying out geocaching – the high-tech treasure hunt that allows you to seek hidden containers through a global positioning system. The app can be downloaded onto a smartphone and used to make your outdoor adventures more exciting.  Alternatively, we have our own more traditional treasure hunt, where families can work together to solve clues as they wander around the hotel’s extensive grounds. Find out more when you check in at reception.

A Day trip to Knebworth House

Just 50 minutes from The Grove is the original home of Victorian novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Knebworth House is now one of Hertfordshire’s top attractions for family days out. Set in acres of stunning grounds, the house is packed with stories and heirlooms to discover. The venue also plays host to numerous concerts and events, including the upcoming Halloween Adventure over October half term. The Garden Terrace Tea Room will be open during the event for guests to warm up with some toasty drinks and snacks.

Afternoon Tea in the Potting Shed

For a fun family treat, book our Kew Gardens afternoon tea in the Potting Shed. Take your seat and enjoy the relaxing sounds of our resident harpist and views of the kitchen garden, before tucking in to picture-perfect cakes, pastries, crumbly scones and finger sandwiches.

A Trip to the capital

It might be a peaceful country retreat, but The Grove is only half an hour from central London. Ideal for culture vultures, adventure junkies and foodies, the capital is home to hundreds of incredible restaurants, theatres, music venues, museums and shops – as well as quirky family-friendly activities like cable cars and escape rooms. Whether you’d prefer to dose up on culture by wandering around some of the world’s most famous art galleries, check out a West End musical, or try out some of London’s street food venues, you won’t be short of things to do.

Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour

It’s been 26 years since JK Rowling released her first novel about a boy wizard, and since then ‘Harry Potter mania’ has swept the globe. For every child who’s ever fantasised about whizzing round the countryside on a flying broomstick, a visit to the nearby Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is a must. The home of filming for all eight Harry Potter movies, the tour offers you the chance to immerse yourself in the wizarding world, wander down the famous Diagon Alley and indulge in a butterbeer. As well as discovering the movie sets, original costumes and props, young Hogwarts hopefuls can even snag themselves their very own magic wand!

Enjoy a movie night in-room

Sometimes there’s nothing better than snuggling up with your family on the sofa for an old-fashioned movie night. With a wide range of films available at The Grove, there’ll be something to please everyone from the comfort of your bedroom. Whether you’d rather stock up on popcorn or order some treats from room service, staying in and getting away from it all can be the ultimate luxury. It’s time to swap your work suit for a dressing gown and get ready for some serious relaxation time.
