Enjoy decadent festive feasts, dazzling fireworks displays, and a whole host of magical activities at London’s Country Estate this festive season
September 2021…// The Grove, Hertfordshire, is delighted to welcome guests this festive season. The inspiring country estate will transform into a winter wonderland, and will offer guests an array of magical breaks, suitable for couples, friends and families alike. With three separate breaks on offer – Christmas, Twixmas and New Year’s – there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the magic and joy of The Grove this season.
The three-night Christmas Break between 24-27th December is perfect for couples and families alike, and includes complimentary use of the expansive Sequoia spa, a fabulous array of activities and, of course, an indulgent Christmas Day lunch. Highlights of the 5-course Christmas Day lunch at The Stables include treacle-cured Wild Scottish salmon, roast Creedy Carver turkey with all the trimmings and mulled wine poached pear with The Grove honeycomb – all accompanied by a glass of Champagne. For those wishing for endless festive dining, a superb Christmas Day buffet lunch is available at The Glasshouse.
There is also plenty to keep little ones entertained, from bauble decorating to Christmas caroling, festive films to a visit from Father Christmas himself, allowing ‘grown-ups’ to unwind and relax with a glass of mulled wine by the roaring log fire. Boxing Day morning is a leisurely affair with breakfast either served in The Stables or from the comfort of your bedroom. Guests also have the option to enjoy a special Boxing Day brunch in The Glasshouse, where Bloody Marys and Prosecco are the drink of choice. Menu highlights include ricotta pancakes with maple syrup and blueberries, wagyu short rib hash with fried duck egg and native lobster roll with a vodka Marie Rose sauce.
For guests looking to unwind between Christmas and New Year, The Grove’s Twixmas Break is the perfect choice. The two-night package offers up the chance to truly relax with full use of Sequoia spa and swimming pool. Unwind in one of the Lounges with a festive tipple and indulge in festive dining, from afternoon teas to winter warmers at The Stables.
The Grove also offers the chance for guests to ring in the New Year in style. With Champagne on ice ready for your celebratory toast, decadent feasts and an array of joyful activities, there’s no better way to start the year 2022. The two-night New Year’s Eve package, with arrival on the 31st, includes either a 5-course dinner at The Stables or a buffet dinner at The Glasshouse, a live DJ set in the main hotel lobby, and, of course, a spectacular fireworks display at midnight, accompanied by a traditional Scottish piper. A decadent New Year’s Day brunch is also served up – the perfect antidote to a glorious evening of merriment and celebrations.
Throughout the festive season, there is plenty on offer at The Grove for guests of all ages to enjoy, from magnificent hawking displays to brisk strolls along the many walking trails, as well as archery lessons, where guests can show off their inner-Robin Hood, and laser clay pigeon shooting. Additional festive treats are also available throughout, with s’mores and tempting baps available from the Chef’s Firepit on the terrace, festive cream teas in the Lounges; and the Fairground Sweet Shop for little ones.
