Grove of Narberth to unveil six new luxury suites in spring


The Grove of Narberth has revealed it is to introduce six new luxury suites to its offering in spring 2016.

The project will be headed up by top designer Martin Hulbert and will mark the designer’s first in Wales.

The six new suites are due to be completed by spring 2016, alongside the refurbishment of an existing suite and three lounge spaces at the hotel, all of which will be designed by Hulbert.

Hulbert has worked with some of the UK top’s hotels, including The Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park, The Grove in Hertfordshire, Barnsley House, Abbey Hotel in Bath, Chewton Glen’s Tree Houses and the recent refurbishment of Cliveden House in Berkshire.

The new suites will be elegant and stylish and incorporate elements of Welsh heritage into their new design.

Commenting on the project, Hulbert said: "The Grove of Narberth is such an inspiring place. There is a real originality, creativeness and honesty to it – there is no pretension at all. Because of that, and because of its wonderful natural setting, it’s like working with untapped goods. We will be using lots of local materials: steel, metal, coal, wood, wool, granite and stone and we are finding so many people in the area to make things and to inspire us.

"This project is not about spending lots of money; it’s about being considered, taking into account its history and what the owners have already achieved. Since they bought the house in 2007, after it had been derelict for eight years, The Grove has become such a favourite and has won so many awards; we are so lucky to be doing this job."

Owner of The Grove of Narberth, Neil Kedward said: “We are really excited to be working with Martin Hulbert Design and are having lots of fun redesigning The Grove’s interiors. Martin will be bringing us bang up to date and there will undoubtedly be a good dose of his wit and charm coming through in the design.”
