It’ll be love at first sight at The Grove, a 4 Star Gold Country House Hotel. When you catch a glimpse of this luxurious country house hotel nestled amid the trees in the green Pembrokeshire countryside, you’ll know you’re in for something special.

It has a beautiful blend of period features and light modern touches, not to mention AA Rosette winning cuisine (much of it picked from the hotel’s own kitchen gardens and or foraged from the surrounding countryside). Take the special romance package and there’ll be bubbly, chocolate and red roses waiting in your room when you arrive. 

If you want to venture outside of the hotel, head to the local town of Narberth and enjoy its wealth of independent shops, bars and eateries - a real treat on your doorstep.

Palé Hall, Bala

Feel like a princess (or prince) in a fairytale tower with a night in a turret room at the 5 Star Gold Award winning Palé Hall. Or, go one better by bedding down in a luxurious suite once occupied by Queen Victoria herself. It’s all part of Palé Hall’s supremely regal appeal. This elegant country house in the gorgeous Dee Valley transports you to a more genteel time, while keeping things relaxed and informal. The best of both worlds.
