Welsh luxury boutique The Grove of Narberth has unveiled the results of its recent refurbishment that has seen the whole ground floor of the hotel ‘reimagined’.
The hotel, which is owned and run by Neil and Zoe Kedward, first revealed at the start of this year plans to give its public areas, lounge and restaurant a new look as part of a £300k modernisation project.
Acclaimed UK designed Martin Hulbert and Jay Grierson were appointed to oversee the project, following a successful transformation of the garden cottages into six new suites in 2016.
The ground floor of the Grove of Narberth now boasts refurbished reception rooms, lounges, restaurant and bar areas, which draw inspiration from the Narberth Hills and Welsh crafts and textiles.
The interiors champion local materials and craftsmanship, with original Pembrokeshire artwork and photography, handmade furniture, vintage lace and quilts, local pottery as well as richly-coloured Persian rugs and antique furniture.
Martin Hulbert says: “It is lovely to be working back at the Grove of Narberth. It’s a magical place and extremely inspiring and has created a storm of new creative energy in our London studio. Its magnificent natural setting and humble charm provides a rich source of inspiration.”
Neil Kedward says: “This is a hugely exciting chapter for us and working with the Martin Hulbert team is always so much fun. Once again he has delivered something that’s very special and unique to us. His passion to use all that is on our doorstep and bringing the outside in is something that has elevated the spaces and inspired our team.”
