The Grove of Narberth in Pembrokeshire unveil a magical refurbishment

The Grove of Narberth are delighted to unveil their refurbishment which has reimagined the whole ground floor of the hotel with the help of acclaimed UK Interior Designer Martin Hulbert and Jay Grierson.

This refurbishment continues the valued partnership between Grove of Narberth and the team at Martin Hulbert Design, following the successful transformation of the garden cottages into six new suites in 2016.  The project has refurbished the reception rooms, lounges, restaurant and bar areas drawing inspiration from the Narberth Hills and Welsh crafts and textiles.  Like the cottages, Martin and Jay have thoughtfully designed every detail to deliver magical interiors with a handmade feel, sympathetic to the early arts and crafts heritage of this old house.

In the secluded setting, all spaces are warm, cosy, sophisticated and full of charm. The interiors champion local materials and craftsmanship at every turn – coal, slate, steel, wool, wood and stone.  You will find original Pembrokeshire artwork and photography, handmade original furniture, vintage lace and quilts, simple local pottery and crafted love spoons alongside richly coloured Persian rugs and antique furniture to give an eclectic feel that is unique to Grove.  The colour schemes are in harmony with the soft rolling landscape outside with chalky hues, plenty of light and shade and interesting textures featured throughout.

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.”
