The Grove Cromer provides quality hotel accommodation both B&B, holiday cottages and glamping within walking distance of the North Norfolk coast.

A family-run guest house since 1936, The Grove is only half a mile from Cromer town centre, and more importantly, it is just a short walk, through its own private entrance into the woods, from the cliffs and beach.

Alongside a choice of ensuite rooms in the beautiful Georgian country house, we have six self-catering cottages in the adjacent barn conversions.

Our fabulous two rosette restaurant serves a full English breakfast, afternoon teas, Sunday lunch and dinner throughout the week. The restaurant is split into two rooms, with the original dining room available for private dining.

There is plenty of space to unwind both for adults and children, whether splashing about in our indoor heated swimming pool, knocking a table tennis ball around, exploring our three acres of gardens with their tree-house and trampoline, or putting your feet up with a cup of tea in our beautiful lounge or new orangery bar. Further afield, a children’s play area is just a few minutes’ woodland walk away.
All the activities of Cromer are reachable either by car or on foot. You can walk entirely off-road along the cliffs through our own entrance into Warren Woods at the top of the garden.

From the day it was built, The Grove has been a family house, a place of welcome, relaxation and security for more than two centuries. Through the guest house and cottages we aim to extend that welcome to all who visit us. We wish our guests to experience the warmth and comfort that has been infused into the house by many generations of people, and we have built on this legacy to create a place where you can come in and immediately relax.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Grove Cromer.

Situated nearby to Loddon and Beccles our gardens surround Raveningham Hall, home to Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon (and home to the Bacon family since 1735).

Enjoy the beauty of our varied and ever-changing floral seasons. The Gardens are set out as the Edwardian plans with large herbaceous borders surrounding a Victorian walled kitchen garden. In the 1960s the planting was enhanced by the inspiration of Priscilla, Lady Bacon an energetic plantswoman who collected many rare species from around the world transforming the garden over 50 years. The walled kitchen garden was brought back to full working order in the last 20 years and is now producing fruit and vegetables for the House. There is a fine late 19th century Boulton and Paul range of glasshouses, stocked conservatory and melon pits, all in working order.

A Millennium project by Nicholas Bacon to build a lake on the North side of the House is now firmly established as is an Arboretum that was planted after the destruction of a wood in the 1987 gale; this gave an opportunity to plant a large variety of trees and shrubs under a plan designed by the eminent plantsman Roy Lancaster. New additions to the garden include a Herb Garden, a Stumpery and a garden designed around Francis Bacon’s essays based on the passage of time.

The main specialities of the garden are snowdrops followed by bulbs in early spring, later in the season agapanthus are a main feature. Our Gardens are circa 10 acres all in a glorious 18th Century parkland setting with sculpture by Susan Bacon in and around the gardens. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
