Pride of Britain boosted by two new members

Grove in Narbeth Pembrokeshire, and Lewtrenchard Manor on the edge of Dartmoor, Devon.

Overlooking the Preseli Mountains, the 20-bedroom Grove, with four cottages, has been extensively restored by the owners Neil Kedward and Zoe Agar since they acquired the property in 2007. The hotel, which was named AA Gruest Accommodation for the Year for Wales in 2010, is surrounded by 26 acres of gardens and meadows, incorporating a 17th century kitchen garden stocked with over 70 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs. Head Chef Duncan Barham specialises in locally-sourced cuisine with a French twist, serving up dishes such as Brecon red deer and Welsh beef.

Meanwhile, the 14-bedroom Lewtrenchard Manor was bought back by Sue and James Murray earlier this year from the administrators of Von Essen Hotels. The Murrays, now helped by son Duncan and daughter-in-law oan, previously ran the hotel for 15 years until they sold it to Von Essen in 2003. The hotel is set within a Grade II-listed Jacobean manor dating from the 16th century.

Pride of Britain now represents 44 hotels across the UK.
