We are delighted to offer you the chance to win a luxurious two-night stay for two at five-star Goldsborough Hall, plus our prize includes tickets to award-winning Newby Hall & Gardens in nearby Ripon.

Goldsborough Hall is a hidden gem of a Grade II-listed 17th-century mansion, having played a key role in the history of Knaresborough, including as home to the Queen’s aunt, Princess Mary, throughout the 1920s. It is now one of the most private, exclusive and beautiful places to stay in Yorkshire, overlooking historic gardens and tranquil parkland and with fine dining in a three AA-rosette restaurant.

The hall is surrounded by 12 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds originally laid out in the style of ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1750s and further enhanced in the 1920s by Princess Mary. Highlights include a copse of Japanese cherry trees, given to Princess Mary as a wedding gift by the Emperor of Japan; 36m-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 spring; and an ancient false acacia, a pair of purple-leaved plums and a rare whitebeam, all officially recorded as British Champions by the Tree Register.

Your stay will be complemented by a visit to the award-winning gardens of Newby Hall, where the layout as a series of rooms has been fine-tuned over the generations and now displays innovative and exciting planting alongside the historic and beautifully matured gardens.
