Winter is a magical time here at The Grove.
As the nights draw in and the weather changes, we fully encourage guests to view The Grove as a home away from home. Enjoy brisk winter strolls, darker evenings, hearty seasonally inspired dishes and robust warming wines. Cosy blankets and a crackling open fire to curl up in front of all help to ensure that you can embrace the colder months here at The Grove.
December also brings a month of celebrations and festivities. Just a few miles away along the coast is the Deepdale Christmas Market, an extremely popular event, with over 50 stalls offering presents, decorations and great local food and wine produce. Less than a 30 minute drive away is the Thursford Christmas Spectacular, the largest Christmas show in the country. This begins on the 8th November and runs through to the 23rd December and is the largest Christmas show in the country. Set amidst the magical surroundings of nostalgic mechanical organs and fairground carousels, with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians – many of whom are West End performers – the 3 hour performance delivers an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety.
The end of our winter season is marked by that most special night of the year – Valentines Day – and every year we offer special packages for couples looking to treat themselves to a romantic getaway!
