It's not every day that you get the chance to stay in the former residence of a Royal Princess, in this case HRH Princess Mary (1897–1965), who was one of the Queen's aunts. Hospitality at Goldsborough Hall is second to none. The luxury bedrooms are appointed to the highest standards, and the bathrooms have a real 'wow' factor. Some of the main house bedrooms feature hand-made mahogany four-poster beds, chesterfields and 60" TVs. The popular, seasonal afternoon tea is served either in front of the roaring fire in the Jacobean Library or in the Dining Room. Reservations for dinner from non-residents are welcomed. Three Tesla charging stations are also available.
