Set in a vast estate, the main hotel is like a set from the TV programme Footballers’ Wives. Extravangant and decadent the bedrooms range in price from £260 to £1,000 with choices of four posters with black feathers and black velvet and other fantasy decor.
There are beautiful grounds to walk around including one of the largest walled gardens in the country with a beautiful conservatory.
There are three restaurants to choose from including The Stables which serves food all day and the Glasshouse where you can see chefs prepare your food.
The Sequoia Spa is one of the most impressive in the UK. Even the changing room has a huge beautiful cream leather lounger. Guests can also wait for their treatments by candle-light. As well as traditional treatments, personalised Ayurvedic pampering is also available.
The Grove is also overflowing with celebrities, including footballers – it has a full sized football and rugby pitch. There is also an 18-hole championship course where your golf clubs are cleaned for you before and after you play.
