Easter discount!

It’s been a strange Spring so far – pre-Easter has been busy but Easter itself not so much, perhaps because it’s pretty late this year.  So we have introduced a 15% discount for full week bookings over Easter week (w/c 19th April). The online booking system calculates this automatically.

The latest journalist review…

We recently hosted a Sunday Express  journalist testing a Nissan electric car and who needed to stay somewhere with an on-site EV Charger. He had considerable problems in charging the car at the very outset in London so it seems that the Belle Grove stay was the most positive part of his experience!

Thankfully the Belle Grove accommodation was the jewel at the centre of the mess of a trip. Its quirky decor, eerily peaceful silence and stunning backdrop make it the perfect countryside getaway. The properties on the site are all five-star converted barns which range in size are well-equipped and there is even an electric charger on the grounds. This Tesla 7.kWh charger is perfect if you have an electric car because you can use your car all day, plug it in overnight and have a full charge by the next morning. You are left to your own devices at the self-catering barns and they are set into a peaceful corner of the countryside, far enough away to not be disturbed by traffic but close enough to the town that you don’t feel too far out of it.
