Throughout the years, as The Grove has passed through generations, it has evolved and transformed into the wonderful, independent family-run establishment that it is today.

In 1936 Robert & Hilda Graveling took ownership of the house, moving in with their young family and turning what was previously a private holiday home into a thriving guest house. In 1978 Robert sadly passed away, so son John took over the running of the house with his wife Ann. The couple went on to have five children and when they retired in 2010 they passed the business over to their children – Richard, Chris, Elizabeth, Hannah & Ruth – who now work in partnership to continue the family business.

As different generations have managed The Grove, one thing has remained the same – the love for their family run and family friendly beautiful home.
