The Grove Cromer is teaming up with The Massage Hut to offer hotel guests and visitors holistic massage therapy seven days a week, in a tranquil wooden cabin surrounded by trees and birdsong.

The Massage Hut is a team of four therapists – Christy, Pat, Jason and Ashlee - who all qualified with the Massage Training Institute, a qualification that is recognised by the UK regulatory body for complementary healthcare practitioners, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). This means that as well as being able to offer relaxing pamper sessions, therapists are trained to understand and work with clients who have short and long term health issues.

The Grove in Cromer Welcomes a New Head Chef

Simon Hunter Marsh has taken over as Head Chef at the Grove in Cromer and hopes to build on their reputation as one of the best eateries on the Norfolk coast.

News from The Grove Cromer

In spring this year, our conservatory was knocked down and the patio that was just outside dug up. Mortons of Norwich came in and added a new roof with a huge central lantern. A wooden decked slope was made to join onto the path to The Orchard Rooms, oak flooring, moody lighting, a little bar in the corner and chesterfields were added. We restored an ancient butler’s tray table from the pre-Graveling era and as for the three remaining walls, they were left pretty much as they have always been, one brick from the 1790s rebuild, one brick from the 1800s kitchen extension, and one flint from sometime long ago.
 
The result is a perfect fit with The Grove. It is small, it is intimate, it is a lovely space to relax into your surroundings. It looks like it has been there for years, probably because three quarters of it has.

The Grove scoops award

The Grove, owned and run by the Graveling family since 1936, only opened its doors to the public for lunch and dinner under two years ago... and now, under chef Charlie Hodson, has been awarded a straight two rosettes for culinary excellence.

It’s a far cry from the traditional seaside guest house image with which Cromer has long been associated and is a further indication that the town is firmly on the rise.
