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.
How to Get There
What a lovely place, beautiful house, excellent hotel rooms, superb dinner and breakfast. All the staff were so helpful, obliging and friendly. I cannot praise it highly enough 100% the best.
The location is ideal for photography of wedding.
The hall is located close to the church with a private pathway between them.
We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the Orangery. We chose the Leek and Potato soup which was gorgeous! Then I had Grouse and my friend had Lamb, both good. We finished with a Salted Caramel Chocolate Mousse with vanilla Ice-cream. Coffee in the lounge ended our meal!
It’s a lovely historic building in a beautiful rustic location
Staff are very helpful and professional
Public rooms are very tastefully furnished especially the drawing room and library
The gardens are immaculate and they have an exotic orangery
Our dinner on first night was excellent especially as grouse
Was on the menu
The “deluxe rooms” were small and with no views
when I asked what were the “standard rooms” were like,I was told there were none!
The taster menu on the second night was neither a meal nor canapés and definitely not worth £100 per head including average 5 glasses of wine
