The national paper's description of the hotel reads: "The Grove is just 20 minutes from Euston, and has stunning cycling and walking trails through its 300 acres.


"Despite the hum of the nearby motorway, this is an excellent place to get outside.

"If the fresh air grows tiring, there’s also a superb Ofsted registered nursery and a spoiling spa; this is a full-on countryside resort, with the sort of glamour that makes it popular with footballers’ wives.

"Staff are efficient and friendly, especially the activities team who make archery lessons, axe throwing and laser clay pigeon shooting brilliant fun."
