A wedding ... my daughter’s wedding! The Bridal party spent the night before the wedding at Groomes. We were welcomed by Pete and Jane and were fed and watered to a very high standard. Pete communicated before asking me what my daughter wanted for her last meal!! I responded with various dietary needs and he managed them! He provided his Jaguar to get the bridesmaids to thy event and then in heavy rain drove the bride to the wedding! Pete went above and beyond for us! He even ended up bringing a suitcase we had left behind to the wedding so we had our belongings the night of the wedding!
Groomes is a beautiful country house in peaceful surroundings. Tucked away it is the perfect venue for an intimate, relaxed wedding. Pete was the perfect host and gave myself and my husband a wonderful day to remember. All our guests enjoyed the venue and the friendly and relaxed feel to our special day. My husband and I stayed the night and the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend Groomes as a bed and breakfast, wedding venue, or for any other type of celebration. Natasha and Matthew Westlake.
We were given a great greeting and wonderful hospitality throughout our stay. Pete was extremely caring and accommodating especially when dealing with challenging older parents. He could not do enough for us.
Amazing Owners, Spacious, Beautiful Views, Very Accommodating - I recently attended a wedding at Groomes and have to say I am thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail and the professionalism of all the staff and owners! If you are having a wedding and looking at a place where you can safely entertain 50-80 people then you will not be disappointed here! One of the Owners (Pete) was on hand throughout the day ensuring everything was perfect and running on time. I cannot fault this place and will recommend for years to come! Thank you for making my best friends day a dream come true and for being so kind and attentive to everyone else! Shaun (Best Man at the Wedding of Matt & Tash)
I rarely write reviews for business trips but this one is an exception. The Groomes is something special... actual out of a storybook and was such a treat during a recent business trip to the area. Pete is one of the kindest and funniest guys and he has built something pretty remarkable in the most picturesque, quessential and organic English manors there is. The house is exquisite and he’s managed to keep the history and integrity of the character in place while still making it contemporary. The grounds are magical and I found myself on a 2-3 hour walk seeing deer, natural streams, wildlife, etc. This place makes you pause and reflect and it all happened during a very hectic business trip. What an irony. I told Pete I will bring my friends back for a girls trip... it’s that kind of place to disconnect and see the organic England. What a treat and I’m so looking to coming back.…
