Donnington Grove

Donnington Grove, Grove Road, West Berks, RG14 2LA

Donnington Grove, a three star country-house hotel in Newbury, is situated in 500 acres of beautiful grounds that include an 18 hole championship golf course. It is a fascinating destination with more than a whiff of English decadence. Built in "Strawberry Hill Gothic" style, this 260 year old, charming building has a unique heritage. Bygone days have seen illustrious and eccentric inhabitants such as British Historian James Petit Andrews, Georgian trend setter Beau Brummell and 1920's femme fatale Daisy Fellowes. Indeed, of all Berkshire hotels, you will struggle to find another with a more curious and intriguing history.
