Driving to Grantley Hall is a treat in itself. You can’t beat the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. And then there’s the drive up to Grantley Hall- stunning. You are greeted by welcoming staff who direct you to a beautiful room dedicated to afternoon tea. The ambience is relaxing and luxurious, They catered for both our dietary requirements and served the sandwiches first. We had separate plates and cutlery for the desserts that followed, which I think is a great idea. I don’t like using a knife that I have just used for salmon to spread my clotted cream! The scones were warm, there were two kinds. We also had a choice of jams and plenty of clotted cream. There was a lovely selection of pastries all made by Stefan and his team. The surroundings and service were both excellent. We were kindly offered a tour and although it is nothing to do with afternoon tea I have to mention that in the Spa they have a snow room! At £32.50 it is a real treat and a great afternoon.
