The Lowdown

Situated within 12 acres of private land, the historical Goldsborough Hall dates back to 1620 and was the former residence of HRH Princess Mary, Queen Elizabeth II’s aunt. Located in the bucolic countryside of North Yorkshire, this imposing stately home is appointed with traditional décor and commands beautiful views of the surrounding area.
Completely renovated to accentuate its original features, Goldsborough Hall is one of the finest stately homes in the region – it’s no wonder that it was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor. Also home to an AA Rosette-awarded kitchen, the culinary team at Goldsborough Hall are renowned for their exquisitely crafted cuisine. When you’re not wandering the halls of this 400-year-old country manor, you could take a drive to Harrogate, York and the bustling city of Leeds, all nearby.

Perfect afternoon tea, wonderful staff

Took an elderly friend for afternoon tea at Goldsborough Hall recently. We loved it! A very special way to celebrate being 90 years old - delicious tea with a glass of fizz. My friend needed some special arrangements to help her enjoy her tea - nothing was too much trouble - a lovely table by a window and in a quiet area so she could hear while we chatted. The staff were without exception totally amazing - helpful, friendly and kind. Thanks so much for a very memorable afternoon.

Lunch in the Orangery

We have just returned from a very relaxing lunch at Goldsborough Hall.
It was our first visit to this lovely historic building.
We were greeted in reception by a very friendly waiter(sorry we did not get your name).
Our coats were taken and we shown to the library a lovely panelled room with a cosy fire which on a cold November day was very welcome.
We had a drink while we perused the lunch menu.

When our starters were ready we were taken through to the bright Orangery which overlooks the gardens which even in November are lovely with the autumn colours.
We had 3 courses and we were both pleased with our choices .
Never had Goats cheeses mousse before it was delicious and the confit of duck was perfectly cooked.
The desserts were delicious and very flavoursome.
We then moved back to the library for coffee and home made chocolates by the cosy fire.

All very indulgent but it was a belated birthday treat.
We would certainly like to visit again when the weather is better to explore the gardens.
If you want to have a relaxing lunch with delicious food, good service in a historic hall this is the place.
Go on spoil yourself .

Wonderful Two Night Stay

Just got back from a 2 night stay at Goldsborough Hall to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. We had a gorgeous huge room in the main hall with an enormous (comfy) bed and big bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. Beautiful view over the grounds at the back of the Hall. We had the 5 course taster menu on the first night which was just amazing-every dish was exquisite. We had steak (from the Orangery menu) on the second night - which was also excellent. The breakfasts were also delicious with plenty of choice and of superb quality. The hotel itself was very impressive - traditional luxury. The staff were just lovely, very professional yet friendly and attentive. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and hope to visit again ourselves in the not too distant future.
