Bed & Breakfast doesn't really do the Grove credit. A lovely listed building that has been restored and modernised very carefully complemented by super hospitality. I was almost loathe to write a review to keep it as a secret for us.

A secret gem on the edge of Harpenden and a very welcome retreat after a busy day at work. Very friendly owners, delicious breakfast and beds to die for. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which has everything you could possibly need for a weekend away. A real home away from home. We'll be back.

The Grove is a rare thing; it absolutely lives up to your expectations. A well built website promises lovely individual bedrooms in a listed building surrounded by fields and views, peace and quiet in spades but only 25 minutes from London. With pleasant hosts and a great cooked breakfast! The Grove does exactly what it says on the tin! Clare...

My husband and I stayed in the Grove's beautiful one bedroom apartment for 10 nights last week (7-18 Aug). This was our second visit and we absolutely love it. The one bedroom apartment is very spacious and has its own entrance, it feels more like a holiday home than a bed and breakfast. The bedroom has a separate dressing area...

We stayed at the end of February for 4 nights, in the self contained/self catering apartment. It was really fabulous, the bedroom more than adequate for myself, my wife and two young boys.

We were lucky enough to stay in the private apartment, and Gary and Claire could not have been more lovely or helpful.

The apartment itself was simply stunning, but what meant more to us was the...
