Six new suites have been magically brought to life in our cottages, taking plenty of inspiration from the local landscape and Welsh crafts and materials. Meanwhile, in the main house, the Daniel and Elizabeth suite has also been reimagined.
Six new suites
Four poster beds sit invitingly under lofty ceilings with original exposed beams. Leather-lined wardrobes, walk-in showers and deep roll-top baths add a touch of glamour and seductive comfort. Locally-sourced antiques and intriguing found items are balanced by contemporary touches. Traditional Welsh items are reimagined; vintage Welsh blankets appear upholstered on sofas and miner’s lanterns are converted into lamps.
These are places to relax; to feel at home and unwind in an uplifting environment.
Daniel and Elizabeth Suite
Elizabeth was once a maid at the Grove of Narberth; Daniel the owner of the house in the 17th Century. The two became lovers and this suite, with triple aspect views over the gardens, a ceiling open to the rafters and plenty of space, keeps their story alive.
The design has a deeply romantic feel; ivory and nude tones give a soft atmosphere, accented with a leather four-poster bed, timber flooring and antiques. Dividing screens separate the space, with an open bathroom at one end.
The interior takes inspiration from ancient Welsh folklore and the art and crafts history of the building, which dates to the 16th Century. The interior is rich with intriguing elements including an installation of carved Welsh love spoons which set the scene.
Daniel and Elizabeth is our star suite at the Grove of Narberth; perfect for romance and a secret space to enjoy together.
The next chapter
“Working with Martin Hulbert Design has been a revelation for the Grove of Narberth. Our eyes have been opened to just how much is on our doorstep here, and the hotel has been bought bang up to date at the same time. We are so excited to be stepping into the next chapter of our story with Martin’s interiors at the forefront”
The partnership between the Grove of Narberth and Martin Hulbert Design will continue; phase two will see Martin Hulbert Design refurbish three drawing rooms.
