Grantley Hall Hotel and Wellness Retreat - North Yorkshire

Grantley Hall

North Yorkshire 

The magnificent Grantley Hall in Ripon opened in 2019 as one of the UK’s most luxurious hotels and spas in the UK.  This five-star country retreat is the only member of Relais & Châteaux in Yorkshire and was named the second best new luxury hotel in the world in 2019.

Bowman Riley delivered the transformation of the elegant Grade II* listed Grantley Hall into one of the UK’s finest country hotels and wellness retreats surrounded by 30 acres of beautiful countryside and set on an artificial island created by the canalisation of the River Skell.

The 17th century classically styled property was built as a private residence for the Grantley family. Extensions in the 18th and 19th centuries followed leaving a principally Georgian elevation. The building has enjoyed a colourful history which includes its use as a shooting lodge, convalescent home during the Second World War and an adult education college.

Inspired by its grandeur, the renovation of Grantley Hall accentuates the historic details of the imposing property featuring a magnificent dual height presidential suite, signature restaurant, brasserie and cocktail bar set in exquisite formal gardens.

To complement the historic Hall, a new spa building and bedroom wing have been created in a modern Georgian style.  Four months after opening,  the Three Graces Spa was awarded 5 Bubble Luxury status by the Good Spa Guide.

A new subterranean Garden Pavilion building featuring a bar, private lounge, an exclusive after-hours club and restaurant has been integrated within the 1910 Japanese garden restored to become one of the most important of its type in the country.

The renovation of the historic hall alongside the creation of two new bespoke buildings will allow hotel guests to experience a five-star luxury getaway in opulent surroundings.
