With a stately backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales Grantley Hall will appeal to your romantic side.

A long sweeping drive and meticulous gardens aside the ever-rushing River Skell. It’s easy to picture this as the setting for a lost Brontë novel.

If these wood panelled walls could talk, they’d tell tales of the royal and famous who’ve visited to the war effort with Dame Vera Lynn singing to the troops. But this is no museum. Classical elegance sits as comfortably alongside contemporary luxury as the plush velvet stools do to the oak bar. Today the tales would be of guests in a deep sense of bliss following a day at the spa, walking in the private parklands, taking in the opulent yet welcoming interior. At day’s end climb the stairs to the softly muted bedrooms and suites with many original features, Italian marble and views over the river and formal gardens. Now, what should we call that novel?
