The final word in comfort, the 17th-century, Grade II-listed Grantley Hall only opened in July last year after a painstaking and costly three-year restoration by its Yorkshire-based owner Valeria Sykes.
The immaculate manor house has won Best for Romance at the Condé Nast Johansens annual Awards for Excellence 2021, which celebrates outstanding hotels and venues in the UK and Ireland and across the world.
Grantley Hall's extravagant restoration not only brought the building and extensive grounds back to their original Palladian splendour, it also introduced new, 21st century features including a marble-clad pool, elite fitness facilities, a Japanese garden and a helipad.
