Camping and reception is on the Grove Parish Council playing fields next to Grove Rugby Club who kindly allow us use of their facilities. There is space for tents, caravans and campers. If the weather is wet cars should be left on the car park next to the campsite to minimise any damage to the grass. Fires are not permitted and barbeques are only allowed if they are raised off the ground.

Dogs are welcome but they must be kept under control at all times and all mess must be collected and placed in the bins provided.

Local Attractions

THE RIDGEWAY - Britains oldest road used for at least 6000 years

 

UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE HILL - Britain's oldest and most famous hill figure, which has recently been dated at 3000 years old. It is unusual that the horse faces to the right while all other horses and other animal hill figures face left.

WANTAGE - birthplace of legendary King Alfred the Great (849AD) whose statue graces the market place

WAYLAND SMITHY’S LONG BARROW - one of the most impressive and atmospheric Neolithic burial chambers in Britain.

WHITE HORSE CEILIDHS run a series of dances in Grove Village Hall with the aim to bring new, young people into an already thriving local Folk scene. These events combine English Ceilidh (energetic barn dances) with performances from local bands and dance groups. Ceilidhs take place roughly every other month and have already attracted a lively, enthusiastic following.
Accommodation

We are not well blessed with B&B options in Grove itself - but there are a few to choose from in Wantage. Wantage is about 1-2 miles walk, or an easy bus ride (buses are frequent) or about £6 taxi ride. We can recommend Regis Guest House,  Alfred’s Lodge and The Bear Hotel from our own experience. If you need more help give Dave or Kate a call and we’ll see what we can do!
