Luxury country house hotel in its very own corner of the Pembrokeshire countryside

The Grove of Narberth is a boutique country escape with a warm Welsh heart. Expect big comfy sofas, roaring fires, acres of pretty gardens and views of the rolling hills – as well as one of the most celebrated restaurants in Wales. Once a historic house, it’s now the perfect haven from which to explore the charms of Pembrokeshire.

The guest rooms which are spread amongst the original country house, and the traditional Welsh cottages in the grounds, all beautifully preserve the Grove’s heritage. Curated by Martin Hulbert Design, period features blend with local crafts and neutral tones, and each room has its own distinct character and features – such as Sorrel in the Herb Cottage with a private garden and wood burning stove, or Seddon with its four poster bed and views of the Preseli Hills. Garden views make the rooms the ideal place to unwind with an indulgent in-room spa treatment – while six of them welcome guests with (well-behaved) four-legged friends.  

When the surrounding Pembrokeshire beckons, pull up your hiking socks – or your wetsuit – and get exploring. Only a short drive from the hotel, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is not to be missed. Discover some of the best coastal walks in Wales, as well as golden beaches and tucked-away harbour villages. Meanwhile, the colourful market town of Narberth is just moments from the hotel, packed with boutique independent shops, art galleries and quirky cafés.

SLH Considerate Collection

Environmentally Conscious

As the first hotel in Wales to achieve the Green Tourism Gold Award in 2016, the Grove has since been recognised with an SSE Green Electricity Certificate for ensuring its electricity is 100% renewable, generated by wind and hydro assets. 15KW arrays of solar panels power the cottages and main house, while an 119KW biomass boiler sustainably heats the whole property. Within the grounds, four beehives were installed enabling the Grove to become self-sufficient in honey production, 4,000 indigenous trees were planted to create a new natural habitat for local wildlife, and two large ponds were constructed which are home to several bird species.

SLH Considerate Collection

Cultural Custodians

Owners Neil and Zoe Kedward discovered the Grove as a derelict property in 2007, and have since worked tirelessly alongside a team of local tradesmen and craftwork specialists to lovingly restore the historic buildings and gardens with a focus on retaining its 15th century soul. The interiors champion local materials and craftsmanship at every turn – traditional Welsh antique blankets are stitched onto the back of modern sofas, whilst local woollen textiles and quilts adorn the walls. The bar is made of Welsh steel and Pembrokeshire purple slate, while antique mining lamps have been upcycled as gentle lighting in many of the bedrooms.

SLH Considerate Collection

Community Minded

Fostering a close relationship with Pembrokeshire’s rural coastal community which is dominated by farming and fishing, the Grove proactively seeks out local suppliers and artisan producers to make sure its food miles add up to ‘just around the corner.’ Executive Head Chef Douglas Balish personally visits his suppliers who are all based in Pembrokeshire or the neighbouring county of Carmarthenshire, alongside handpicking fresh ingredients and herbs from the kitchen gardens. The Grove’s walls are also filled with paintings by local artists and photographers, while local sculptor Darren Yeadon’s stone pieces can be found in the gardens.

Grove of Narberth Picnic

Every day’s a picnic

There’s always a good reason for a delicious picnic – especially at the Grove, where the chef prepares it just for you. Ask for a Gourmet Hamper for a laze-away-the-afternoon spread, including charcuterie and Champagne. Or request a hearty Rucksack Walkers’ picnic if you’re heading for the hills. Staying put is always an option, too, especially for hotel’s famous afternoon tea. Sip Champagne on the sunny garden terrace, or if it’s chilly, tuck into just-baked scones before a roaring fire. 
 
Grove of Narberth

When in Pembrokeshire…

The stunning landscape around the Grove of Narberth speaks for itself, especially nearby Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. With 186 miles of coastal walks, dramatic clifftop scenery comes as standard, as do golden beaches, secret coves and some of the best surf in the country. Meanwhile, the Medieval harbour town of Tenby, with its award winning beaches and 13th century town walls is a must visit.
 
Grove of Narberth Fine Dining

From foraging to fine dining

Award-winning food and wine are defining features of the Grove. Subtle botanical motifs throughout the Fernery are a nod to the surrounding woodland and the restaurant’s love of using local ingredients in its tasting menus. If you fancy something more casual, head to the Artisan Rooms for comforting meals that celebrate the very best of Pembrokeshire, from Welsh lamb and local fish to artisan cheeses. 
 
Neil Kedward Independent Minds

Independent Minds: Neil Kedward

Wonderfully rustic and wholesome in style, the Grove of Narberth began life in the 15th century as a traditional Welsh longhouse owned by the Bailiff of Tenby, and is now the first and only five-star hotel in South West Wales. Its sublime setting in the charming coastal county of Pembrokeshire is one of the many magical qualities which initially drew Welshman Neil Kedward and his wife Zoe to the once derelict country house, which has now been lovingly restored to become a food-led, pet-friendly hideaway in Wales’ most popular holiday destination.

Charming, tranquil getaway with first class dining and service

The quiet, rural location made for a special getaway. Our room, a junior suite in an outbuilding, was well equipped, bright and cozy, and a short walk to the hotel.

An absolute gem! I will 💯 be returning.

We ran into the head gardener while we were enjoying the stunning walled gardens and he indulged all out amateur gardening questions! And gave us a full history of the cutting and kitchen gardens.

Lovely atmosphere with traditional feel

This is a lovely hotel, tucked in the countryside so very quiet. You definitely need a car - you can't easily walk into Narberth. Our room was comfortable but a little dark and old fashioned for me so next time I would call Reception first to make a better room selection. Lovely staff and a very good Read more[SPLIT]Read lessbreakfast.
