Built by the Gibbs, a wealthy merchant family from Liverpool as their summer retreat. Later it became the permanent family home. The Gibb sisters, Alice and Janet continued to live in the house until their deaths in the 1970’s. The house provides a real insight into the lives of this family from Victorian times to the 20th Century.

The Grove Museum of Victorian Life tells the story of the Gibb family and their Victorian summer retreat, which later became their permanent residence and family home. Beautifully preserved to provide an intriguing insight into life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, a visit to the house, outbuildings and country garden is like stepping back in time.
Please note The Grove Conservatory will be changing its daily operation from 2016 and will be available for visitors to sit and enjoy hot and cold refreshments from The Grove Shop and ‘bring your own’ family picnics. It will also be available to book for special occasions and pre-booked groups of 15 or more.
Special catering will be offered on event days and it will host bookable Country Garden Afternoon Teas on dates in June – August. Further information coming soon.
