Situated in a stunning and serene part of North Yorkshire, Goldsborough Hall is a true stately manor that has retained the rich tapestry of its long history and an opulence that befitted its former blue-blood residents. Surrounded by beautifully-landscaped grounds and boasting unspoilt views over tranquil parkland, this 400 year-old manor was once the home to generations of aristocrats and became the first marital residence of Princess Mary, aunt of Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband, the Earl of Harewood. Climb the grand oak staircase that dates back to the birth of Goldsborough Hall and discover five luxurious and sumptuously-decorated suites that seamlessly blend history with the luxuries of the modern age - mahogany four-poster beds, ivory leather Chesterfield furniture, 50 inch plasma screen televisions and wireless monsoon showers.
Despite the modern luxuries, you cannot escape the illustrious history of this venerable manor. The Jacobean library, with its fabulous oak-panelling and magnificent painted plasterwork ceiling, dates back to the 17th century. Theres a 300-year-old memorial to a famous stallion and evidence of the Royal Princesss time at the Hall is everywhere.
See the stained-glass windows that were a wedding gift from the Mufti of Jerusalem, walk down the Lime Tree Walk, planted by members of the royal family, or relax amid the beauty of cherry blossoms, a present from the Emperor of Japan. From December 2009 our residents can now also choose to dine with us in style. Reservations for dinner must be made with at least 48 hours notice from the date of your arrival and menu options must be pre-selected prior to the day.
