Denham Grove is set in 42 acres of grounds just northwest of London with easy access via the M40 and M25. It combines a modern design with a peaceful rural setting.

In addition to on-tap coffee and tea, there is a bar area and the spacious dining-room serves a choice of dishes. There is free access to the internet for surfing the web.

You need to be seated for your evening meal between 18.30 and 19.40. After this time, the restaurant will stop serving to new arrivals. Should you wish to participate in the evening bridge sessions we would recommend you arrive by 18.40 to give you time to enjoy your meal. All meals are buffet style, assistance can be provided if required. Day guests are not entitled to breakfast on any day but are welcome to stay for dinner. Tea and coffee will be available at the coffee points for the duration of your stay.

Indoor pool, spa/jacuzzi, sauna, gym and tea/coffee available in the bedrooms and on tap in the venue.

Travelling to the Hotel

Denham Grove is approximately 1½ miles away from Denham train station, however the venue would not advise anyone to walk this distance due to the winding roads. Taxis can be booked with Alltime Radio Cars Ltd - 01895 234234 or Denham Station Cars - 01895 832211. Denham Stations Cars can also be found at Denham Station on platform 2.

Location

Will Parsons

Will Parsons

Will Parsons is married to Sylvia and they have three grown up children and six little grandchildren. He has been playing bridge with steadily increasing enthusiasm for about 16 years, mainly at good club level, and he is currently Chairman of Droitwich Bridge Club. He finally retired from his job as a Purchasing consultant and trainer in 2012 after running down his involvement over the previous 5 years. However, that work had given him substantial experience in training, and he spoke at a number of purchasing conferences all over the world.

Will & Sylvia started coming on Mr Bridge holidays and weekends in early 2008 and soon became hooked. They both joined Mr Bridge as helpers after Will qualified as an EBU club tournament director in 2011. Will & Sylvia both really enjoy playing with different clients and encouraging improving players to increase in confidence and learn to love the game. 

Outside bridge they enjoy good food, walking and reading.

Whatever the game we will be able to accommodate you - finding partners or team-mates whenever necessary.

Non-Bridge Activities [Walking & Outings]

Do remember this is your break - you are free to roam the countryside, or visit one of the many local attractions in the area. Or of course you can simply take a break - watch some sport or lie down for a siesta or visit villages and towns for some shopping!

Checking Out (1100 on day of departure)

The hotel would like clients to check out before 11am on the day of departure. Therefore we advise that you check out after breakfast - bags can be stored for the rest of the day.

Tips

For those wishing to give gratuities to the staff - we do make available a collection bag on the day of departure - contributions are strictly optional and we hand this bag over to the staff at the end of the event.
