Kitchen Garden

Goldsborough Hall has a fully working and traditional kitchen garden to supply fresh produce for our Dining Room.

Here the gardeners produce a wide variety of produce for the kitchen including French and runner beans, beetroot, salad, herbs, broccoli, peas, potatoes - many of which are rare and unusual varieties.

This year we have focused on rebuilding the large glasshouse in the kitchen garden and are redeveloping the site to restore it as a working traditional kitchen garden.

 

Royal Gardens of Goldsborough Hall

While the gardens are not generally open to the public, Goldsborough Hall is proud to continue the tradition started by HRH Princess Mary (who lived here in the 1920s) of opening them twice a year as part of the National Garden Scheme. The Hall also opens the gardens for two Snowdrop Days in February.

The Hall also offers private guided tours for groups throughout the season (£16.50pp for a minimum of 10). Included in the garden tour is tea and a fresh cream scone served in the Hall, along with a garden guide and a history talk on the house.

History of the Gardens

The delightful 12-acres that surround our Grade II* 17th-century stately home are the icing on what is already a very special cake, winning the Hall a coveted spot in The Times' 'top places to stay with great gardens'.

The fascinating story of the gardens began in the 1750s when Richard Woods laid out landscaped grounds in the style of Capability Brown.

HRH Princess Mary made her mark in the 1920s, following her marriage to Viscount Lascelles, son and heir of the 5th Earl of Harewood, initiating a raft of improvements in both the house and gardens.

While the hall was remodelled by architect Sidney Kitson, a vista was created in the gardens with a walled terrace, beech avenue and herbaceous borders around Princess Mary's sundial.

In 1922, Her Royal Highness and Viscount Lascelles planted the first tree in the Lime Tree Walk with the remaining 33 trees, planted by honoured guests, including King George V and Queen Mary. The gardens were first shared with the public on July 4th 1928 when Princess Mary opened them as part of the newly created National Garden Scheme.

Among the many highlights are a copse of five Japanese cherry trees, given to Princess Mary as a wedding gift by the Emperor of Japan; 120ft-long herbaceous borders replanted in a Gertrude-Jekyll style; the quarter-of-a-mile Lime Tree Walk, host to more than 50,000 daffodils in the spring; and an ancient false acacia, a pair of purple-leaved plums and a rare whitebeam, all officially recorded as British Champions by national charity the Tree Register.

Goldsborough Hall is a magnificent hotel.

Anon, stayed: August 2019

We chose Goldsborough Hall for a special occasion, we enjoyed our stay in the Hutton Suite which was luxurious. On arrival the lift was out of order and our suite was on the 2nd floor not good for two pensioners near 80 years of age, the lift was repaired the next day. Our criticism is only having a limited choice of menu and the excessive price of alcohol.

Weekend at Goldsborough Hall

AW, Essex, stayed: July 2019

The hotel was more 4* than 5*. We booked an Emperor Suite, which certainly had the wow factor. However, there were no biscuits, body lotion and the advertised turn down service did not happen. The hotel appeared short of staff. There was often a queue at reception and the service at breakfast and dinner was slow. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and when available, helpful. The owners were friendly. The public rooms were well appointed with some interesting photographs. The gardens were lovely.

Disappointing - style over substance

GS, West Midlands, stayed: July 2019

Stayed 3 nights DB&B mid week. Good location and setting, but fails to deliver on it's five star rating. Very limited choice on set dinner menu that didn't change during the three day stay, and the on first evening chose duck main course and it was raw in the middle!. Breakfast buffet limited though the hot selection was good. Final straw was at check out when we found out a 10% service charge had automatically been added for each the three evening meals and bar bills, which didn't appear to be discretionary so we felt obliged to pay.
