Further Afield

And another fab guest blogger - please help me welcome Ashley!  She, too, likes to get out of London now and then; turns out that National Rail is a popular option for expats in London.  Note to self: explore the English countryside more!

Hi Betsy Transatlantically readers!  I’m Ashley and I blog over at A Hop, Skip & Jump Over The Pond.  While Betsy is away on vacation holiday I wanted to tell you guys about a great weekend holiday Jon (my Fiance not Betsy’s boyfriend hehe) and I went on a couple weeks ago.

We recently got engaged and 3 of our friends got us a night’s stay at The Grove as an engagement gift.  The hotel was beautiful and the amenities even better. 

The country estate has a spa, hotel, golf course, 3 restaurants, pool, gym, salon and offers a list of activities to do during your stay.  We walked around the estate where they are currently having a Sculpture exhibition with pieces from artists all over the world.

We also enjoyed massages and steams at the Sequoia spa.

If you are looking for a weekend away but don’t want to fly anywhere The Grove is the perfect place.  You can take the overground there and even though you are only 30 minutes away from London you feel like it could be hours away.
