Gardens at Grove luxury hotel Wales

Our Gardens

Grove’s gardens offer a stunning visual treat throughout the year framed by our ancient oaks and towering beeches. The gardens are spread over 4 acres of the 26 acre estate which is beautifully located on a hillside overlooking rolling Pembrokeshire countryside, with the market town of Narberth and the Preseli Hills to the north of us.

Throughout the late winter and early spring, our driveway, streams and meadows are filled with early colour from snowdrops, to pretty crocuses and daffodils.

These soon make way for a carpet of bluebells in the sweeping meadow from our cottages to the lawn of the main house. As we move through May the fields and woodland that surround us are filled with wild flower and the cherry blossom on the front terrace delights.

The rhododendrons introduce summertime and the flower borders then blaze into colour. The borders around the house and our parterre on our front terrace are framed by formal box hedging with the beds filled with stunning herbaceous and perennials plants to provide interest throughout the year. The cottages enjoy a softer planting scheme with much higher densities of perennial planting together with flowering shrubs.

Our Head Gardener Jerry and his team are continually evolving the gardens. If you do come across him in the garden he would be more than happy to show you around and share with you some of his gardening tips.
