Grantley Hall  

For December’s Hotel of the Month we thought we would spotlight a property that really comes into its own during the festive season.

Grantley Hall is a hidden jewel located in the Yorkshire Dales which houses 47 exquisite bedrooms, four indulgent restaurants, including Michelin-starred Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall, and a superb wellness centre.

As Christmas approaches, so this glorious Grade II* listed Palladian mansion is magically transformed into a winter wonderland adorned with decadent decorations, twinkling lights and roaring fires aplenty. 

With an extraordinary programme of Christmas & New Year’s Eve House Parties, Grantley Hall will be the ultimate getaway for families, friends and couples looking to make up for missed celebrations this festive period. 

Foodies will delight in an impressive festive menu in Fletchers Restaurant and a decadent festive afternoon tea in the Drawing Room. Meanwhile Grantley Hall’s new winter drinking and dining location, Après at The Orchard, is the perfect spot to escape the cold and snuggle up in a magical alpine setting. Here indulgent winter cocktails, boozy hot chocolates and delicious seasonal dishes, from traditional cheese fondue to caramelised French onion soup, await.

Perfect for burning off those Yuletide calories is the Three Graces Spa which complements a range of treatments and therapies with facilities that include an 18-metre indoor swimming pool, outdoor cedar hot tub and sauna, steam room and snow room. 

This Christmas, families are also invited to experience the magical world of Narnia as the Grantley Suite and Japanese garden will be transformed into the mystical land and children can follow the winter trail to visit Santa’s Grotto, nestled into the snow-covered gardens.
