There’s no doubt about it that Hertfordshire is filled with show-stopping locations, attractions, and accommodations, but do you really know where you can find these hidden gems?

We want to show off the truly Instagrammable and awe-inspiring accommodations and experiences that are happening in our county making you say “I never knew this was in Hertfordshire”.

At Home Farm

Festival season only comes once a year so let’s celebrate this one and see where the excitement takes us! Transport to the countryside haven and dine under the trees or wander through the woods lit up with fairy lights guiding you through to the Instagrammable secret woodland stage. Returning for the third summer season, in all its musical, foodie and live entertainment is At Home Farm. It’s a place where we can forget about our problems and reconnect with nature and experience something new. From contemporary jazz to live circus shows, you will never be bored… Take a look at the outstanding lineup from June to September and relax in the woods in style. 

Don’t want to travel back after the festival? Then camp in style with Home Farm Glamping giving you that getaway experience to remember but in comfort. Soak up its peaceful and tranquil surroundings and nestle down in one of the Yurts or sleep under the stars in one of the picturesque bell tents.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London

Magic your way into the wizarding world at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, and walk in Harry’s footsteps when Discovering Hogwarts. Brand new for 2023 this event invites visitors to explore Harry’s early years at Hogwarts and to experience some of their favourite scenes brought to life.

Walk through the Great Hall in awe, admiring the 400 floating candles hanging above you for the first time since filming and learn to master ‘Wingardium Leviosa’ in Professor Flitwick’s Charms class and watch the feathers around you rise.

This unique experience is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make you question if you truly are a witch or wizard.

An enchanting feast on Cloud 9

Let's wine and dine to cloud nine with this latest immersive dining experience at The Grove in partnership with Feast on Cloud 9. Sit inside one of the hand-crafted hot air balloons, set in the Formal Gardens overlooking the ornamental ponds and art installations.

Delve into a delicious afternoon tea or a nine-course gourmet tasting menu sending your taste buds soaring and wanting more without leaving the ground! 

Not only do they host awe-inspiring events but The Grove Hotel is in our opinion a wow factor! It has everything you could imagine from relaxing retreats to the perfect family getaways, this is the ultimate getaway.
