Combe Grove is under new ownership, and we’d like to introduce you to The Elmhurst Foundation. The Elmhurst Foundation have exciting plans for the hotel, all of which will have health & wellbeing at their heart. Combe Grove will continue to evolve, making the very most of the hotel’s tranquil woodland setting and outstanding natural views over the Limpley Stoke valley. We will develop the range of daily classes and introduce new residential courses with a focus on health and wellbeing, including yoga, meditation, painting, and writing. These will sit alongside a programme of practical courses such as bee-keeping, dry-stone walling, and hedge-laying, amongst many others. This purchase is the first step of a five-year plan which will see The Elmhurst Foundation realise a vision to transform Combe Grove into a centre for work-based learning excellence, creating a range of high quality, enhanced apprenticeships for local students. Elmhurst’s apprenticeships will be offered across each department of the business, including marketing, administration, finance, hospitality, catering, customer services, listed building crafts & conservation, estate management & horticulture and others. This is a very exciting time for us, and we look forward to sharing more updates on how Combe Grove will develop in the coming months. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with us on
