Style & Character
City dwellers looking for a country escape or lovers of history will like it here. Goldsborough Hall is also an ideal destination for outdoor types, or anyone looking for a night or two away with a real sense of style and opulence. From walks around the award-winning estate and kitchen gardens, to lazy mornings in a quiet space, it's the perfect place for some much-needed R&R.
Service & Facilities
Service at Goldsborough Hall is second to none. It can be something of a worry that the waiting staff might be a touch too stuffy or formal in such a grand venue, but everyone at the Hall is warm, friendly and polite - the perfect Yorkshire hospitality. We love the antique oak-panelled Jacobean library, with ornately painted ceilings, low lighting and dark leather chesterfields. It's both cosy and atmospheric, the perfect spot for pre or post-dinner drinks, or to warm up in front of the fire after a day exploring.

Dogs are allowed to stay with their owners in Garden Rooms. Max two dogs per room, £20 per day per dog.
The Luxury bedrooms, in the Hall's 1830s Dower House wing, are compact but still have a light and airy feel. King-sized mahogany sleigh beds, exposed oak beams and twin sinks, combined with views over the courtyard and woodlands, give you the same sense of comfort and luxury as the main house rooms. Goldsborough Hall offers dog-friendly rooms on the ground floor, and there's plenty of outdoor space to tire your four-legged friend out before bed.

Food & Drink
Each dish from our tasting menu showed off the kitchen's level of skill and dedication to seasonal ingredients. The standout had to be the locally reared venison - perfectly cooked and melt-in-the-mouth tender - with black garlic, parsnip and blackberries all grown in Goldsborough Hall's kitchen garden. Arrive with a good appetite; the dishes are well portioned and full of flavour!
