Babysitting Services


At The Grove, babysitting services are provided by our trusted partner Tinies – the UK’s leading childcare company. A babysitter will take care of the little ones so you can enjoy a dip in the pool at Sequoia spa, a romantic evening meal, or nightcap in the lounges. Simply let us know at the time of booking if you would like to book a babysitter and we will contact Tinies on your behalf. Babysitting fees start from £22.50 per hour with a minimum three hour booking time.

For full babysitting terms and conditions please speak to a member of our Reservations team.
